    Maple-Pecan Carrots Maple-Pecan Carrots

    A shiny maple syrup glaze complements the natural sweetness of carrots. Try them the next time you serve pork chops or roasted chicken.

    Prep: 25 Min

    1/2 cup water
    Dash salt
    4 cups sliced fresh carrots
    1 tablespoon butter
    3 tablespoons maple-flavored syrup
    1/4 cup chopped pecans*

    1. In medium saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. Add carrots; cover and cook over medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes or until carrots are tender. Drain; cover to keep warm.

    2. Melt butter in same saucepan over low heat. Stir in syrup. Add carrots; cook until carrots are well glazed, stirring constantly. Serve topped with pecans.

    Tip: If desired, pecans can be toasted. To toast, cook pecans in small nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until browned, stirring constantly.

    For extra flavor, sprinkle carrots with a little nutmeg or cinnamon just before serving.
