Maple Bourbon Carrots

posted in: Recipes 0

Growing up, I hated cooked carrots. I didn't like the texture and most of the time the flavors that were paired with. Truth be told, there's still some dishes I still pick them out of. This side brings in some fall flavor and really enhances this wonderful vegetable. Hope you enjoy!

  • 1 bunch Carrots small with stalks on
  • 3 TB Butter
  • 1 ½ TB Bourbon
  • 2 TB Maple syrup
  • ¾ T Salt


  • Clean the carrots. Cut the stalks off 1 inch above the carrot. Cut away the dirt area between the carrot and the stalk (if you want to save time, you can cut the entire stalk away, but I always like keeping it). Then peel.
  • Place in a heavy bottom pan, like a dutch oven (or large pan) with 3 cups of water. Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer and cover. Cook for 15 minutes.
  • Strain the carrots and then wipe the pan clean.
  • Add butter and carrots to the pan over medium heat. Saute for 2 minutes.
  • Add bourbon and light on fire! Shake pan back and for until the flames go out.
  • Add maple syrup and a little more salt. Cook for 10 minutes.
  • Serve with whatever you want!
