Maple Pecan Carrots

A shiny maple syrup glaze complements the natural sweetness of carrots. Try them the next time you serve pork chops or roasted chicken.



  1. In medium saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil.
  2. Add carrots; cover and cook over medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes or until carrots are tender.
  3. Drain; cover to keep warm.
  4. Melt butter in same saucepan over low heat. Stir in syrup.
  5. Add carrots; cook until carrots are well glazed, stirring constantly.
  6. Serve topped with pecans.

* 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.

For extra flavor, sprinkle carrots with a little nutmeg or cinnamon just before serving.
