Directions

  1. Peel and cut the carrots into batons. (You can do this up to 24 hours ahead and keep them in a polythene bag in the fridge.)
  2. Tip them into a pan, pour in enough boiling water just to cover, bring back to the boil, then put a lid on the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes until the carrots are just tender.
  3. Meanwhile, put the butter and maple syrup in a small pan. Heat until the butter is melted then stir in the mustard.
  4. Take off the heat. Drain the carrots and tip into a warmed serving dish.
  5. Pour the warm maple glaze over the carrots.
  6. Taste and adjust seasoning to suit.
