Glazed Carrots | www.tasteandtellblog.com

I have to admit to you all – the end of this pregnancy is kind of kicking my butt.  I’m really struggling to keep things going instead of just climbing into bed and waiting for this baby to come!!  I’ve actually been doing really well at cooking, but photographing and the writing part have been hard to keep up with.  Luckily, I’ve been building a reserve of recipes so that once I have the baby, my blog will go on like normal, but in the meantime, I apologize if I’m short on words and if I haven’t been around visiting other blogs much.

But – I will still be bringing you recipes!!  And this is one you HAVE to try.  I seriously could have eaten this whole batch of carrots myself.  So if you, or a loved one, suffers from not loving veggies, this is the perfect way to change that!!

Glazed Carrots
Slightly adapted from America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook

Serves 4

Total time: 20 minutes

1 pound carrots, peeled
½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces

Slice the carrots on a bias into pieces that are ¼ inch thick. Combine the carrots, broth, 1 tablespoon of the sugar, and the salt in a 12-inch skillet. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and continue to cook covered, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are almost tender, about 5 minutes.

Uncover, return to a boil, and continue to cook until the liquid has reduced to about 2 tablespoons, about 2 minutes.

Stir in the butter and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the carrots are completely tender and the glaze is lightly golden, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with pepper and serve.

    Deborah, I am right there with you! I'm getting to my done point, and have found myself just not caring about getting a photograph of an awesome meal, or have great pictures but not posting because I just can't seem to write the post.

    The carrots look delicous. I'm sure I could eat the entire batch myself too.

    My great grandmother and then my grandmother always made glazed carrots for Thanksgiving. I never liked them as a child but love them now!

    And kudos to you for still keeping up with your blogging when you are about to have a baby! I hope for your own comfort your baby comes soon!

    oh – sounds like a really interesting twist. Will need to give these a try.

    I remember being pregnant only too well (my little boy is now two years old). I worked right up until the day before he was born. I pushed myself too far and a difficult birth did not help matters either.

    Try and take it easy – get some rest whilst you can. Your life is totally different forever (in a good way !) once little one arrives….

    That last stretch there at the end was always the toughest for me too. I hope you have a chance to rest during the day.

    Glazed carrots are a real favorite of mine. I'm with you, I could eat the whole bowl of them!
