  • 1 pound carrots peeled & cut into sticks or rounds
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 pinch cinnamon optional
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley optional
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Prep the carrots, then add them to a deep skillet or saucepan. Cover them with water and boil over high heat until tender (will vary depending on the size of the carrots... it took me about 10 minutes).
  • Drain the water from the pan then add the carrots back in.
  • Add the butter, brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon to the pan. Cook over medium heat (or medium low if it's too hot) for about 5 minutes until you've got a nice sauce and it's thickened a little bit.
  • Season with salt & pepper as needed.
  • Serve immediately with some parsley sprinkled over top if you wish.
