Carrots right out of the ground

 

Maple Glazed Carrots

An easy side to sweeten up any cold winter meal. 

Ingredients

10 or so medium Carrots, Sliced
4 Tbsp Butter (Can use coconut oil also)
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Ground Ginger

Chop carrots into 2 inch long sticks or slice them into disks. Steam for 15-20 minutes. In a saucepan on low mix together a 1/2 stick of butter a ¼ cup of maple syrup, 1 teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of ground ginger. Once the butter has melted and the spices have mixed in, drizzle it over the top the carrots and serve.  You can keep a little boat of the sauce around for those who like it sweet!
