IMG 1048.jpg


1 ½ lbs carrots, peeled and sliced in ½ inch rounds

3 Tbsp butter, divided

1/3 cup bourbon

1/3 cup brown sugar

½ tsp salt or more – it really brings out the taste


Optional: 2 Tbsp chopped chives


Melt 2 Tbsp butter in a skillet over medium high heat.

Add carrots and stir for a minute to distribute butter.

Turn heat to medium and add bourbon.

Cook for a minute to let bourbon begin to evaporate then stir in brown sugar.

Cover the skillet and lower heat to barely a simmer.

Allow carrots to cook for 5 to 7 minutes stirring a couple of times.

Uncover, add salt and pepper and remaining butter and allow glaze to thicken 2 to 3 minutes.

Top with chives if desired and serve. Enjoy!
