Best glazed carrots

Darci Juris


There are many ways to glaze carrots, but this is the best recipe you will find, I promise. Refreshing, fresh, slight sweetness with a little tang. Perfect side dish to any protein.
Side note: cutting carrots on the diagonal helps to create uniform thickness and size which is better for uniform tenderness for each carrot, and it looks cool too! You can use baby carrots as well, but may take a little longer to cook.
