Maple Glazed Carrots


 Maple syrup glaze on carrots is almost like eating carameled carrots! Amazing!

As you know we are eating from our garden everyday! I love that! Payson loves to pick carrots from the garden, wash them in the hose, or not, and eat them. One time this summer I even caught him eating the stem of the carrot. He said it was good, I’ll take his word on that one. When Carson was a little boy he used to beg me to make “soft” carrots. Those two boys just love carrots!

Today I decided to make them these extra yummy soft carrots. They are so good I think I could eat them for dessert with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. I might actually try it sometime. It would be a little like carrot cake with ice cream, right? Whether you eat these for dessert or as a side dish, you will fall in love with them.
