Our Family's Version of Glazed Carrots

Our Family's Version of Glazed Carrots

Serve these glazed carrots as a side dish to hamburger steaks.

Ingredients: 1 carrot's worth

100 ml
2 tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon
5 g


1. Peel the carrot, and slice about 1 cm thick. (You're supposed to shave off the sharp edges, but I omit this step).
2. Put the water, sugar and salt in a pan. Add the carrot slices and simmer.
3. Simmer until the liquid has reduced and the carrot is shiny. (Simmer until there's still a little liquid in the pan. If you let it boil for too long, it may burn!)
4. Drain well. Discard the cooking water.
5. Put the carrots back in the pan, add butter and sauté.
6. You could pack these in your bento as well!
