Candied Carrots

July 17th, 2010 at 07:39 am

No Bugs Bunny at our house munching on a carrot and asking, Whats up, Doc?

But last night we had some great carrots and if my husband and our friend could have grown ears to get more, they would have!

Ive been checking out cookbooks from the library each week and I go through them and if I find a recipe I think Id like to try, I type it up and print it out. If it is a success, I three hole punch it and put it into my cookbook notebook. If it isnt a success, I dont keep it.

I changed the recipe a little bit because we prefer our carrots soft, so I cooked them longer than the recipe, but everything else is the same.

Candied Carrots
lb. fresh carrots
stick butter
cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Clean carrots and cut into bite-size pieces. Steam 10 minutes or until tender. Melt butter in a large skillet over low heat. Add sugar and cinnamon. Cook 1-2 minutes. Add hot carrots, stirring well to coat.

So, do you think Bugs would approve?

    I have tons of cookbooks and cooking magazines. When I try a recipe a few times and like it, I write it in my cooking journal.

    I love candied carrots - I used a recipe similar to yours - but I had some clove sugar and used that. Smashing. And if you have a wicked sense of humor - stewed wabbit on a bed of clove sugar carrots.
