  • 1 pound baby carrots, or any sliced up carrots
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¼ cup light or dark brown sugar
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • parsley, for garnish


  • Put carrots, brown sugar and butter in a pan over medium heat. Stir occasionally so they don't burn.
  • Once the liquid reduces and becomes like a glaze, season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve once they are tender.
  • Sprinkle in some chopped parsley to garnish.


  • The baby carrots are small enough that you can put the whole carrots into the pan as is. If you are using larger carrots, cut them into smaller pieces.
