Bourbon Glazed Carrots
The hardest thing about these carrots is keeping them from stealing the show at dinner time! They pair really well with braised or smoked meat dishes but they can be served with almost anything.


1/2 cup butter
2 lbs carrots, peeled, cut into equal-sized pieces
1/2 tsp salt, or more to taste
1/2 cup bourbon whiskey
1/3 cup brown sugar
freshly ground black pepper to taste


Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
When butter foams up, add carrots. Season with salt and cook, stirring, until liquid from carrots evaporates and carrots begin to brown around the edges, 5 or 6 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium-low. Carefully pour in bourbon. Cook and stir until bourbon is almost evaporated, about 2 minutes.
Sprinkle in brown sugar. Stir until carrots are almost cooked through, about 5 minutes.
When carrots are nearly tender, raise heat to medium-high to thicken the glaze, 15 to 30 seconds.
Season with fresh ground black pepper.
