    Add syrup and butter to carrots in saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until carrots are glazed. Sprinkle with pecans.

Expert Tips

  • Substitute purchased sugar-glazed almonds for the pecans.
  • Real maple syrup is more expensive because it takes 20 gallons of maple sap to make one gallon of syrup! Less costly maple-flavored syrup is a blend of less-expensive syrup and pure maple syrup or flavoring.
