I used a bag of baby carrots. I poured off most of water after the carrots had cooked and then added in about 2 tbsp. butter, 4 tbsp. brown sugar, sprinkled on some dill, salt and pepper. The sauce smelled so good that I wanted it to stick to the carrots a little better so I mixed 1 tsp. cornstarch into 1 tsp. water and poured into the pan to thicken the yummy sauce. Excellent.
The addition of dill to a standard brown sugar carrot glaze is interesting. My problem is, why is this called "maple" dill carrots, when there is no maple? This should be made with maple, rather than brown sugar, to have that name.
Made these last night, they were wonderful. I used a fat free butter substitute and Splenda brown sugar blend. I found the sauce a bit runny like most people, but found that if you turn the heat way up after mixing in the butter and sugar rather than turning it down, the sauce will thicken and stick to the carrots. Thanks for a great recipe, we loved it!
I really like this recipe and have made it three different ways. 1) Made as written which is very good, but should be named "Brown Sugar Dill Carrots." 2) Made as directed plus added 2 drops of Maple Extract to get the maple flavor you'd expect from the recipe title...also very good. 3) Most recently, I substituted 2 T. Pure Maple Syrup in place of the 2 T. brown sugar. I like it best this way. I've also found that 1 1/2 T. butter is enough, and we prefer it with just 1/8 tsp each of the salt and pepper.
We liked these. I used 3/4 t dried dill next time I will only use 1/2t. I also cut the black pepper down to 1/4 t. The ammount listed was too much. The recipe should say to boil the carrots they don't really cook when simmering. I drained out the excess water & added the rest of the ingredients. I wanted to use baby carrots but the store was out so I used reg size ones. It was a little runny. I made these with pork chops. Thanks I will be making these again!
I steamed the carrots to retain more nutrients, then tossed everything into a Pyrex Portable casserole. Traveled well "over the river & thru the woods" on a 30 minute trip to grandmother's house. Yummy and unique, everyone raved! Thanks!
Have made these twice this week. The first time I cooked the carrots on the stove and today I used the microwave. Both came out delicious. I will trying making them with maple syrup next time. Thanks for the recipe.
