Glazed Baby Carrots With Thyme

Glazed Baby Carrots With Thyme created by Demelza

This is adapted from one of Canadian LIving's Best Recipes Ever. It is a lot faster to make than some of the slow cooked glazed carrot recipes. We had these for dinner one night with rice, peas and sweet & sour ribs. They would be great to serve dinner guests. They will think you spent ages working on the dish, when in reality you only need to stir them several times near the end of cooking. If you have children who will look at the carrots & say "What are those funny leaves in there? I AM NOT EATING THAT" just leave the thyme out. You could use dried thyme leaves or ground thyme if you want to, just reduce the amount to about 1/2 tsp ground, or 3/4 - 1 tsp dried leaves. I think this would be great with some lemon thyme in the summer. If you use fresh thyme, garnish your serving dish with a whole sprig of thyme. I hope you enjoy them.

    Delicious and easy side dish. My whole family enjoyed these carrots. I used Splenda in place of the sugar and it worked out fine. Thanks!
