The natural sweetness of carrots goes well with maple flavors in this easy side dish.

Ingredients

1/4
cup chicken broth
1/4
teaspoon salt
2
lb ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots
1/4
cup real maple or maple-flavored syrup
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4
cup coarsely chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1 In 12-inch skillet, heat broth and salt to boiling over high heat. Add carrots; reduce heat to medium. Cover; cook 10 to 12 minutes or just until crisp-tender. Drain if necessary.
  • 2 Add syrup and butter to carrots in saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until carrots are glazed. Sprinkle with pecans.
Tips  

Substitute purchased sugar-glazed almonds for the pecans.

Real maple syrup is more expensive because it takes 20 gallons of maple sap to make one gallon of syrup! Less costly maple-flavored syrup is a blend of less-expensive syrup and pure maple syrup or flavoring.
