These Cider Glazed Carrots are a simple, tasty side dish that is the perfect addition to any meal!
4 cups apple cider
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon fresh thyme or half that of dried
1 tablespoon brown mustard
2 pounds small baby carrots, peeled and left whole
4 tablespoons butter, divided
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon white pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a medium sauce pan place cider, brown sugar, thyme and mustard and bring to a boil. Lower to a fast simmer and reduce down to one cup.
While glaze is reducing, lay out carrots on a sheet tray in a single layer.
Melt half the butter and brush all of the carrots then sprinkle on salt and pepper.
Roast carrots for 20 minutes then remove from oven but leave the oven on.
After glaze has reduced to one cup, add in the remaining two tablespoons of butter and stir to melt into glaze.
Pour the glaze over the carrots and place back in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until tender.
Place carrots in a serving dish and pour the glaze from the sheet pan over the carrots and serve.
