Even though carrots offer a ton of health benefits, such as providing antioxidants and vitamin A on their own, they are just not everyone's cup of tea. Sauteeing the carrots in a sweet sauce adds flavor to them, which may convert those that claim to hate carrots into carrot fans. This may work especially well for kids that prefer to eat sweets. Using fresh carrots gives you the freshest taste, but if you don't have time to wash, peel and chop them up, canned carrots work just as well.
Things You'll Need
- 1 lb.canned carrots
- Small saucepan
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 2 tbsp. honey
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- Salt, to taste
- Pepper, to taste
Open the cans of carrots and drain the liquid. Rinse the carrots thoroughly.
Fill a small saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add a dash of salt when the water begins to boil.
Add the carrots to the water, cooking until they are fully tender, about five to six minutes.
Drain the water from the saucepan and return to the stove.
Stir in the butter, honey and brown sugar until the ingredients are fully melted and form a glaze on the carrots.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
Tips & Warnings
- If you want the carrots to be a little less sweet, omit the brown sugar.
