Maple Glazed Carrots
I never really liked carrots as a kid but after forcing myself to eat them recently I have actually grown to enjoy them quite a bit. I prefer them raw but I like them cooked too. Especially when they are simmered in butter, brown sugar and pure, delicious maple syrup.

These sweet, glazed carrots are the perfect side dish for your upcoming Thanksgiving feast. Not only are they quick and easy but they only require 4 ingredients, 3 of which I’m sure you already have in your kitchen. I almost always have baby carrots in the fridge for snacking on so I can whip up these carrots with dinner anytime!

1.  In a medium skillet, heat the butter, sugar, and maple syrup over medium heat, stirring until smooth and the butter is melted.
2. Add the carrots and toss to coat. Cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the carrots are tender and glazed.
