Snake Creek Grill Caramel Carrots

  • 6 carrots, peeled, cut diagonally
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar image placeholder

Blanch carrots in boiling water until tender, approximately 20 minutes. Do not overcook. Cool quickly in ice water. Drain. (Can be done ahead of time.)

Heat canola oil in a large sauté pan. Place carrots into pan and sear them until lightly brown. Add butter and brown sugar. Cook until caramelized (the sugar melts and becomes a thick, clear liquid).

Makes 4 to 8
