Normal pan glazed carrots (butter, brown sugar, S&P) Try adding Pumpkin Pie Spice (Cinnamon Ginger Nutmeg Allspice) Great Fall flavors although I do this year round. Anybody else?

No need to agg sugar IMHO they're sweet enough i think.

I do something similar with sweet potato, but use Cajun seasoning and pan fry. Plays the sweet and heat card well.

I throw a star anise in with the butter. I'll add a bit of minced shallot, but no sugar.

Butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Can't wait to try the pumpkin pie spice and the garam masala ones!

Nice. I don’t add sugar to carrots because they are already very sweet. I like to add cumin, coriander, and a pinch of cayenne.

Also, has anyone ever grilled their carrots? They are phenomenal! You need large carrots cut lengthwise into slices. Season with olive oil and your choice of spices and grill. You’ll thank me.

Steam carrots until just short of being done. Toss in melted butter and sauté a couple of minutes to start to get a bit of color, deglaze with bourbon, add brown sugar and just a pinch of cinnamon and either a pinch of cayenne or ground chipotle, if I want a bit of smoke.

I like to braise the carrots in butter and ginger ale. When carrots are soft, crank up heat add pinch of achiote, cumin, and cayenne. Reduce to glaze. Tossing frequently. S&P to taste.

I did a batch sous [email protected] 160deg F for 4 hrs with a little sweet cream butter and brown sugar. The texture was perfect, but a little too sweet. Were still good, but there is room for improvement.

I've always used honey instead of sugar for carrots (my mom did the same). Garlic and seaseme seeds also goes well on glazed carrots.
