Sugar and candied ginger bring out the naturally sweet flavor of carrots in a four-ingredient, 20-minute side dish.
Updated Nov 11, 2009

Ingredients

  • 6 medium carrots, sliced (3 cups)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped crystallized ginger

Steps

  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan, heat 1 inch water (salted if desired) to boiling. Add carrots. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and cook about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.
  • 2
    In same saucepan, cook sugar, butter and ginger over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bubbly. Stir in carrots. Reduce heat to low. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until carrots are glazed and heated through.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Instead of the sliced carrots, you can use 3 cups of baby-cut carrots, cut in half. If you don’t have crystallized ginger, you can use 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger.
  • tip 2
    Look for crystallized ginger in the ethnic-foods or spice section of your supermarket. It’s easy to cut the ginger with kitchen scissors, but run them under hot water first.
  • tip 3
    Sugared rosemary adds a festive touch to holiday dishes. Sprinkle fresh rosemary sprigs with powdered sugar, or brush rosemary sprigs with water and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
