- 1 POUND CARROTS
- 4 TSP APPLE JUICE
- 1 TB BROWN SUGAR
- 1 TSP BUTTER
- ¼ TSP GROUND NUTMEG (OPTIONAL)
Cut carrots into 2” long pieces. Then cut each piece lengthwise into quarters.
In a large saucepan with a tight fitting lid, bring about 1” of water to a boil. Place carrots in a steamer basket and set the basket in the saucepan, making sure the basket sits above the water. Cover the saucepan and steam for 8 – 10 minutes or until crisp tender.
Meanwhile, in a 1 cup microwave safe measuring cup or custard cup, stir together the apple juice, brown sugar, and butter. Cook in a microwave oven on high power about 25 seconds or just until the brown sugar and butter are melted.
To serve, transfer the carrots to a serving bowl. Drizzle with the apple juice mixture and toss until coated. If desired, sprinkle with the nutmeg and toss again.
