This may not be one of the dishes that Mama served for Sunday dinners at our house, but I’ve grown to like them over the years.

If you grow your own carrots, or buy some from a local farmers market, this is a great way to serve them with about any meal. The slight sweetness of the brown sugar and unique tastes of carrots just seem to go well together.

I like to use the baby carrots you buy in the grocery store. They’re already peeled, fairly uniform in size, and they cook up nice and tender – despite the fact that they aren’t really baby carrots at all. Go figure.

The taste of glazed carrots reminds me of candied yams, another one of my favorites.
