Easy Sweet Carrots


  • 2 lbs. Carrots Chopped
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • Enough water to cover carrots in pot


Put carrots in a pot,cover with water add the brown sugar and salt, bring to a rolling boil on high heat, then reduce the heat to med-high heat, cook until tender about 30 minutes to an hour. (I like mine tender, not crisp). Once carrots are the desired tenderness turn temp to low and simmer until ready to eat. Check and stir occasionally, some of the water will cook out, add more water as needed while cooking. Strain with a slotted spoon to serve.

Tip: The longer these simmer the better, they will become sweeter as they sit, and taste more flavorful and sweet the next day. More or less sugar can be added according to your taste.  

Serving Size: Serves about 6

P.S. You can add cinnamon to taste if desired
