Step by Step Instructions:
Your dinner is about to get a whole lot tastier, because this Maple Bourbon Glazed Carrots dish will be on the table in no time. Here’s what you’ll need: Maple Syrup, 1 1/2 pounds of sliced Carrots, Bourbon, Salt & Pepper, 2 teaspoons of chopped Dill, Brown Sugar, and 1 stick of unsalted Butter.
Start off this Maple Bourbon Glazed Carrots dish by adding 3/4 cup of your favorite Bourbon to a skillet, while heating the pan over medium to medium-high heat.
Now you want to let the Bourbon reduce in half, so that some of the alcohol taste burns off. Speaking from experience, keep an eye on the pan so that it doesn’t reduce too fast. Anywhere from 4-10 minutes in you’ll be good, so stay close.
Here is the reduced bourbon.
Next add the butter, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 cup of maple syrup to the bourbon, so that you can create the glaze.
Then stir and allow the butter to melt.
Once the butter has melted, add the carrots, dill, and salt and pepper to the pan. Stir so that the carrots are coated in the glaze. Reduce the heat and stir occasionally for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Once the Maple Bourbon Glazed Carrots are tender but still have a slight bite, they are all done. Serve right away and top with more fresh dill right before enjoying them. Happy veggie eating!!
