Description

These maple glazed carrots are so delicious at this time of year. I serve them with roasted chicken but they are also great as a Thanksgiving side dish.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, dark or amber
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 5 cups sliced carrots, about 1/4-inch thick
  • 4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  1. Heat butter in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, until soft and browned.
  2. Add water, syrup, salt, and cinnamon. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Add carrots and return to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  3. Cover, reduce heat to medium to maintain a lively simmer, and cook, stirring once or twice, 4 to 6 minutes, until carrots are crisp-tender.
  4. Remove lid and stir in vinegar. Increase heat to medium-high and continue cooking, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes, until liquid has thickened and carrots are coated. Serve warm.

Notes

For the best maple flavor use Grade A dark (robust) pure maple syrup.

To make this recipe vegan, substitute 1 tablespoon avocado oil or coconut oil for the butter.
