Cider-Glazed Carrots are a great side dish for any dinner!
I noticed something recently, I love glazed carrots! I could eat them like candy if they are coated, glazed, and soft. They are simply delicious!
These Cider-Glazed Carrots make for a wonderful addition to a holiday table. We typically serve them for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner.
How do you make Cider-Glazed Carrots?
I found a recipe over on Cooking Light for Apple-Glazed Carrots and it sounded so good I knew I had to try it! I ended up heavily adapting it because I wanted to cut out a few things like bacon. I originally shared this years ago, but even now we still use this recipe every year.
I also decided to cook it until all of the liquid was soaked up in the carrots making them scrumptious!
These would make for a wonderful side item for Thanksgiving dinner.
They almost tasted as sweet to me as sweet potatoes. I felt like I could have topped them with a little cinnamon to make them over the top good! Who knew carrots could be sweet like candy?
Tips for Making Cider-Glazed Carrots
My husband and I enjoyed them, plus they are fairly healthy too! I used a little olive oil to grease the pan but aside from that, it was simply brown sugar and apple cider.
These taste the best when you let all the liquid soak and simmer right into the carrots.
They can even be garnished with some cinnamon on top to really enhance that cider flavor too.
These are perfect for a holiday side dish.
We serve them every single year for Thanksgiving dinner. They are so quick, easy and seriously they taste like candy. Does it get any better?
