Maple Glazed Carrots

If you want kids to eat their veggies, these are a sure fire hit. 
  • 4 cups carrots, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill, or 1 teaspoon of freeze dried dill
  • salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste
  1. Put the carrots in a pot with about 1/2" of water. Simmer the carrots until tender crisp and all the water is evaporated. 
  2. Stir in  the butter, maple syrup and dill.
  3. Continue simmering until the sauce thickens stirring constantly. This only takes a few minutes and can burn easily if you don't watch it. 
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Tip - If you don't have Maple Syrup substitute with brown sugar.


  1. Not the ones I know...so fussy and I think it's my fault. I was a fussy one, too. These look fantastic. Forget the kids, I'm going to try them just as soon as I find some maple syrup.

  2. These are going on our menu this week... with maple syrup!

  3. Mmmm - carrots with maple syrup - fantastic!

  4. Mom made this when we were kids. Good memories!


  5. I made this for my family and it was a big hit! Yes our kids at their plates clean and asked for more.

  6. What about substituting Sugar Free maple syrup?
