Cooking Methods:

• IN THE SLOW COOKER. Place the carrots in a greased crock pot. Combine melted butter, salt,pepper, brown sugar and water. Drizzle over carrots, mix until carrots are coated. Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours, or until carrots are tender.

Set the timer for 3 minutes. Once done, manually release the pressure by switching the vent to “venting”.

Additional Notes:


• Top with fresh herbs like parsley or thyme.
• Use larger carrots – peel and cut into coins or chunks. Just make sure the slices are all equal in size, and adjust the bake time accordingly.
• Squeeze an orange or lemon juice over the top for a bright twist.
• For some extra flavor and texture, add ⅓ cup pine nuts or chopped, toasted walnuts or pecans after simmering for the first 6 minutes.
