Since Halloween is finished and even however we are surrounded by Christmas in the stores, on the television and on the radio, but I am resolved to appreciate this long stretch of gratitude and Thanksgiving. So I’ve been contemplating and arranging Thanksgiving dinner. We are celebrating in Utah this year so I don’t have a great deal of intending to do but I will get a nourishment assignment. Probably the biggest issue at my house on Thanksgiving is stove space. Tragically, I just have one broiler and limited stovetop space so I have taken in a couple of tricks to ensure everything gets cooked at the same time and one of those tricks is using my slow cooker! Using your slow cooker for some of your side dishes is the ideal solution to too little cooking space. Simply put the carrots into the slow cooker. Include the sugar blend and give it a chance to cook on high for 3-4 hours. Simple! I love the combo of the sweet that comes from the nectar and the cinnamon spice. I strained off the juice and afterward put it in a container and boiled it until it decreased down and afterward coated the carrots with it.

I garnished them with a bit of fresh parsley and they are table worthy. I’m sure I don’t have to reveal to you that slow cookers just make life easier. Sometimes they imply that dinner is prepared when you are, without the 5:00 what-the-hell am-I-going-to-make issue or the tumultuous evening cooking rush. Different times, slow cookers equivalent salvation when occasion menu culmination has you short on broiler space and stovetop real estate. The last case is the place these Slow Cooker Honey Cinnamon Carrots come in. Have you heard that Easter is directly around the corner? Indeed, my friends, these sweet and glossy little beauties would make the ideal backup to ham. Their cinnamon-kissed nectar butter coat makes them delightful, but addictive. We should just allude to them as carrot candy starting now and into the foreseeable future, you all.

The mix of nectar and cinnamon always reminds me of a sopapilla, yet cinnamon gives carrots an almost sweet potato casserole or pumpkin pie-like quality. So guess what that means? This recipe is not limited to Easter. It would also be a prevalent backup to Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. So far as that is concerned, this is not simply an occasion recipe! I have most likely that your family would be thrilled to heap their plates with some Slow Cooker Honey Cinnamon Carrots on any ol’ Tuesday.

How to Make Crock Pot Carrots

Presently for a couple of recipe notes. To get obvious off the beaten path, these carrots are so easy to make. They’re initially slow cooked in liquefied butter, a bit of salt, and a discretionary splash of whiskey, which adds a layer of flavor without making the carrots unmistakably taste like whiskey. What’s more, I should know, because I strongly dislike whiskey and would not appreciate these carrots if they tasted like it. But they don’t, so I do, and I figure you will, as well! (Confused a lot?)

After the carrots are tender, brilliant nectar is stirred in, alongside cinnamon and a bit of unadulterated vanilla concentrate. These join with the butter to create a glorious coating. From that point, you can just set your slow cooker to WARM until supper time. Tenderly stir the carrots before serving, and remember an additional sprinkle of coating over your plated carrots, because of cinnamonhoneybutterYUM.

Speaking of stirring, I want to rapidly clarify the photos going with this post. I actually cooked my carrots in an enormous, oval, 6-quart slow cooker. I just transferred them to this smaller, 3-quart slow cooker for photography purposes, because the carrots were down at the base of the bigger slow cooker and it was difficult to take pictures with those shadows.

While the carrots would have easily fit in my smaller slow cooker, I favored cooking them in my bigger model because it gave me room to painstakingly stir them subsequent to including the nectar. By that point, of course, the carrots were soft and tender, and a small, swarmed slow cooker could have resulted in them getting coincidentally slashed up while attempting to consolidate the sticky nectar with a spoon. I most likely wouldn’t have thought about slightly ravaged carrots if we were just going to eat them, but once more, blog photos. It’s really up to you as to what size slow cooker to use, but I think the carrots are a bit easier to stir in a bigger one.
