While this simple recipe for cooked carrots practically screams fall, it’s just as tasty and nutritious any time of year. The sweet, tender Mapled-Glazed Carrots will prove a favorite for the whole family, and they’re a sly, smart way to get a little color on picky eaters’ plates. What’s not to love? After peeling (or scrubbing) and slicing the carrots, you’ll throw them in a skillet with syrup, butter, and a bit of water and salt and pepper. The mixture caramelizes over the stove and the liquid reduces a bit, into a thick, subtly sweet glaze. Have the kids help peel the carrots while you get the rest of the meal started!
