Butterscotch and Black Pepper Baby Carrots

This was a simple, easy and delicious way to prepare fresh baby carrots. A great weeknight side dish to have in your repertoire.

Butterscotch and Black Pepper Baby Carrots

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound baby carrots, halved lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

In a medium skillet, heat the butter, sugar, and salt over medium-high heat, stirring until smooth. Add the carrots and toss to coat. Cover and reduce the heat to medium. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the carrots are tender and glazed. Top with black pepper. Serve hot or warm.

Looks like we are on the same wavelength. I was awakened this morning at 5:30 by the emergency hotline to say that we were under a flood watch. It has been raining for 5 days. Your brisket would be good right now.
