Maple-Gazed Carrots

Serving Size:Serves 8


  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 4 pounds (about 11 cups) carrots, peeled, cut on a sharp diagonal into 1/4 inch thick ovals
  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter

Carrots are such a traditional, yet classic side. This tasty recipe will be in demand for future holidays and gatherings.


Combine water, carrots, 4 tablespoons of butter, sugar and coarse salt in heavy large pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until carrots are just tender when pierced with a knife, about 10 minutes. Drain. (Can be prepared 3 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.)

Melt remaining 6 tablespoons butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add maple syrup and brown sugar and stir until sugar dissolves. Add carrots and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt & pepper. 

Transfers carrots to a large bowl. Sprinkle with parsley & serve.
