Brown sugar carrots

This post was originally posted in July 2010.  I have been going through my previous posts to see which ones need to have a photograph added or the photograph updated.  This post need the picture to be updated.  When we had this side dish for dinner last night, I decided to snap a new picture of the dish.

Brown Sugar Carrots

Original post:

My mom gave us various vegetable seeds last April. My hubby decided to plant some of them.  One of the vegetables was carrots.  Last night, I harvested some of the carrots.  I decided to make brown sugar carrots for dinner.

This recipe is so simple, but the taste is superb.

Brown Sugar Carrots

Stars of the Recipe:

  • carrots cut into circles (about 2 cups)
  • 2 Tbsp. of butter or margarine
  • 3 Tbsp. of brown sugar (You can add more if you want it sweeter.)
  • 2 tsp. of ground cinnamon

Steps:

  1. Cut up the carrots.  Put in a microwaveable bowl.
  2. Put the rest of the ingredients in the bowl.
  3. Place the bowl in the microwave and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.  You want them tender crisp not mushy.
  4. After they are finished, take the bowl out of the microwave and then stir the syrup up.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

The other day I had to change our menu because we changed our plans for the week.  I had gone through our pantry and noticed we had a lot of spaghetti noodles.  So instead of barbecue chicken legs, I decided to have spaghetti.
