Bourbon-Glazed Carrots – An Easter Side Dish that Really Shines

Before all you cardiologists out there start a petition
drive to have my channel removed from YouTube, let me add the following
disclaimer: These butter-soaked, bourbon-glazed carrots should be enjoyed no
more than twice a year. 

Okay, now that we got that out of the way, I can go
ahead and tell you that this is, in my humble opinion, the greatest,
special-occasion carrot side dish of all time. Sweet, savory, and oh so glossy.


And yes, as unreasonable as it sounds, you do need bourbon
to make bourbon-glazed carrots. What happens if you just make this recipe and
use water instead of the whiskey? You get glazed carrots. Close, but no cigar.
By the way, in related news, bourbon also pairs very well with cigars. Anyway,
if you’re looking for a stellar, and very shiny vegetable side dish for your
Easter celebration, I hope you give these bourbon-glazed carrots a try. Enjoy!


Ingredients for 6-8 Portions:
1 stick (4-oz) butter
2 or 3 pounds carrots, peeled, cut into equal-sized pieces
1/2 to 1 tsp fine salt, or to taste
1/2 cup bourbon or any kind of whiskey
1/3 cup brown sugar
freshly ground black pepper and cayenne to taste
fresh thyme leaves to garnish, optional
