A shiny maple syrup glaze complements the natural sweetness of carrots. Try them the next time you serve pork chops or roasted chicken.
* If desired, pecans can be toasted. To toast, cook pecans in small nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until browned, stirring constantly.
Yield: 6 (1/2-cup) servings
For extra flavor, sprinkle carrots with a little nutmeg or cinnamon just before serving.
