Recipe Notes

Most candied carrots recipes are way too sweet and the amount of brown sugar or molasses or maple syrup masks the flavor of the carrots. The combination of the unsalted butter and a small amount of maple syrup with the salt balances nicely with the natural sweetness of the carrots.

"An intellectual carrot. The mind boggles."
