Sweet Carrots Recipe from Savory Spice


  • 2 cups baby carrots*
  • 2 Tbsp. butter*
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar or maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. Park Hill Maple & Spice Pepper
  • pinch of salt
  • Fresh chopped thyme, chives, or parsley for garnish


*If you use the larger garden baby carrots with stems you may need closer to 4 cups by volume; if you buy the packaged baby carrots 2 cups will work just fine. For a dairy-free, vegan, and lower-fat version of this dish, use apple juice or orange juice in place of the butter.


Cover carrots with water in in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 to 6 min. then drain and return to pan. Add remaining ingredients and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 min. Transfer to a serving bowl, pouring any remaining sauce from the pan over top. Sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs of choice. Best served warm.

Made these carrots per recipe except used both the butter and orange juice, along with pure maple syrup and the Park Hill Maple Spice blend. I wrapped in foil and laid on grill. Awesome flavor with just a hint of spicy. I'm not sure I can make carrots any other way now. Loved it. Thank you. I love your spice blends.
