Maple Glazed Carrots


12 large carrots, peeled

8 tbsp. butter

¼ cup maple syrup

Fresh lemon juice

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves



1. Cut carrots into 2" lengths, then halve or quarter the pieces lengthwise so that all the carrots are in equal-size strips.


2. Melt butter in a large heavy sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add carrots, cover, and braise, stirring occasionally, until carrots are fork-tender, 20–30 minutes.


3.Increase heat to medium, and stir in syrup and a squeeze of lemon juice. Cook for 2 minutes, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Add thyme and mix well.
