This is a good recipe. I found it on the internet and I have made carrots and pineapple and loved the taste.

Brown sugar, or honey and butter. Here are some recipes.

Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots

2 pounds carrots
1/2 teaspoon salt, if desired
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup margarine or butter
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon salt

Peel the carrots, & cut into 1/4-inch slices. Heat 1 inch water to boiling in the saucepan over high heat. Add the 1/4 teaspoons salt if desired. Add the carrot slices. Cover & heat to boiling again.

Reduce heat just enough so water bubbles gently. Cook covered 12 to 15 minutes or until carrots are tender when pierced with a fork. While carrots are cooking, heat the brown sugar, margarine, orange peel & 1/2 teaspoon salt in the skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved & mixture is bubbly. Be careful not to overcook or the mixture will taste scorched. Remove the skillet from the heat.

Drain carrots in a strainer, then stir them into the brown sugar mixture. Cook over low heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally & gently, until carrots are glazed & hot.

Carrots are cooked with brown sugar & butter, resulting in a sweet, flavorful brown sugar glaze.

pepper, to taste

In a medium saucepan, combine the baby carrots with remaining ingredients. Stir to blend ingredients. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium & continue boiling (uncovered) for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until carrots are tender & the liquid has evaporated.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Combine carrots, olive oil, salt & pepper in a blow & mix until carrots are coated.

Roast vegetables 8 minutes; stir. Roast vegetables 8 minutes longer & stir again. Continue roasting until vegetables about five minutes, or until they’re tender enough to be easily pierced with a knife. (Can be prepared 2 hours ahead. Tent with foil & let stand at room temperature. Rewarm uncovered in 350°F oven 10 minutes.)

Melt butter in heavy small saucepan over medium heat. (Do not let brown.) Stir in honey & vinegar. Drizzle honey glaze over vegetables & serve.

Mmm. This one is tasty. It's a twist on the old brown sugar/butter glaze, adding dijon mustard (use spicy brown or even regular yellow, if you haven't got dijon). Yum!


Simply butter but also you could glaze with a little honey and pop them in the oven for 10 or so mins after being steamed.

Sour cream, mayo, ranch, ceaser dressing, melted cheesewhiz

Orange juice and brown sugar and a sprinkle of ginger makes them fancy. Or a cream sauce. I like them best with butter.

brown sugar will make candid carrots'


I like to use just butter, salt and a little cayenne. Makes it spicy and saucy.
