Sweet baby carrots pick up a hint of smokiness and a beautiful brown glaze in this side dish.
- Prep: 10 mins
- Cook: 20 mins
- Yields: 4 Servings
1Add water to medium skillet and heat to a simmer.
2Add smoked sugar, smoked salt, and lemon juice and let simmer until smoked sugar and smoked salt are dissolved.
3Add carrots and butter then cover and cook over med-low heat for about 5 minutes, or until carrots are just slightly soft when pierced with fork.
4Uncover pan and crank heat back up to med-high to simmer sauce until reduced by half.
5Grind on pepper and add the baking soda (sauce will bubble) and keep tossing/turning carrots until sauce is golden brown, caramelized and delicious.
Baking soda is the secret ingredient. It will bubble up the glaze and form a shockingly crisp and brown "candy" on the carrots.
