Ingredients

  • 10 carrots large
  • 4 Tbsp butter divided
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • dash black pepper freshly ground
  • 1 sprig oregano optional

Instructions

  • Wash and slice carrots into sticks, or use about 2 pounds of baby carrots.
  • Heat skillet over medium-high heat. You want it pretty hot.
  • Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter and add carrots to the skillet. Sear them to get that pretty roasted color on them. It will take about 3-5 minutes
  • Once carrots have a little browning on them, turn the heat down to medium-low. Add more remaining 2 Tablespoons of butter. Add pure maple syrup, salt, and brown sugar. Toss until carrots are coated in glaze.
  • Cook carrots in the glaze uncovered for about 10 minutes, stirring often. The glaze will begin to reduce and get thick.
  • Remove carrots from skillet. Pour extra glaze over the carrots. Garnish with fresh herbs, ground black pepper, or nuts. Serve.
