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.

Makes 6 (1/2-cup) servings

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.
