  • 1 pound Carrots (sliced)
  • ¼ cup Butter
  • ¼ cup Brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Cornstarch


  • Start by peeling and slicing clean carrots.
  • Place sliced carrots in a deep pot and cover with water. Allow to boil for 2-3 minutes or until they are bright orange and starting to softened. Drain carrots and set aside. 
  • In the same pot add butter and allow to melt. Reduce heat and add brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Whisk together until melted and well combined. 
  • Add carrots back into pot and cook again for another 2-3 minutes or until soft. Remove from heat and allow to sit and thicken for 1-2 minutes then serve. 


Time Saving Tip:
To save time peeling and slicing try using baby carrots. They would need a few more minutes to soften up but other then that you can follow the recipe as if when changing carrot type.

Follow the directions then set aside to cool. Store in an air tight container for 2-3 days in the fridge. 
To reheat add them to a pan with a tablespoon of butter and reheat.
