Even friends who aren't fond of cooked carrots have enjoyed this way of fixing them. It's easy, quick, tasty and goes with anything.
- 1 lb large carrot, peeled and sliced diagonally into 1/4 inch slices
- 2⁄3 cup water
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons Bourbon
- Combine all ingredients in a large heavy skillet over medium high heat.
- Cook until carrots are tender and liquid has turned into a glaze, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Season to taste.
Can't believe I forgot to rate this recipe. These are awesome! I have made these many times now and everybody loves them. I use Jim Beam and let them cook for a long time. The leftovers are even great cold the next day or nuked.
Nice change. I don't know why more people don't try them. I used Knob Creek Bourbon. They are a little sweet with just a hint of the bourbon. Nice for company. Thanks!
Wow! Easy and delicious! Love the flavor the bourbon lends to the carrots! I bet they would get a beautiful color by par-boiling them; then roasting them with the butter etc. in a 425 degree oven. Yum! I'm going to try that next time. Thanks, we will be making these often.
