Apple-Glazed Carrots

Apple-Glazed Carrots

Adding Apple-Glazed Carrots to your holiday meal is a great way to add vegetables without adding another vegetable casserole. Casserole side dishes are great, but they can be heavy - especially when they're served at a big meal like Thanksgiving. This carrot side dish is lighter and so delicious. The carrots' natural sweetness is complemented by its apple glaze. These carrots are truly terrific and would make a great addition to your holiday dinner menu. Whether you make them for Thanksgiving, Easter, or a family dinner, they'll really hit the spot.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter

We had a barbecue yesterday and my man made these Apple Glazed Carrots as a side dish. We had no honey so he used soft brown sugar which caramelizes beautifully and I know that everyone loved the dish because there was not a scrap of carrot left! A really very nice twist on a carrot dish and one which we will definitely be having again and again.

It's so hard to find a good recipe for carrots to make them less boring and tasteless...this is a great idea and they look so festive and colorful, you can probably make anyone forget they're good for you. The apple juice is a nice touch and you can probably even add a few sliced apples to this dish if you wanted to.

This sounds like a great recipe for carrots. I find that carrots can be quite boring to eat as there are only so many things you can do with them but this is such a novel idea. I never thought of adding apple juice to carrots. I think that is a nice combination. I will definitely be making this dish!

These look really tasty and easy. I've been looking for more light veggie side dishes, and this looks fabulous.

I love having carrots as a vegetable side! They're my favorite :)

I have never had carrots at a holiday meal, but I can see why other people have. It's refreshing to have a vegetable dish that's not a casserole.

Super easy to make and tasted delicious! The addition of light brown sugar is a nice touch. Happy Turkey Day :)

I absolutely loved this side dish! It's always nice to have a vegetable on the menu, and this was the perfect complement to a carb-heavy Thanksgiving meal.
