I thought I would try to make carrots that are close to the awesome ones you get as a side at Cracker Barrel. I like these much better :)

Recipe Ingredients for Better than Cracker Barrel Carrots

32 ounce baby carrots
5 tbsp margarine
6 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp salt

Recipe Directions for Better than Cracker Barrel Carrots

  1. Run water to well cover carrots and bring them to a rolling power boil.

  2. Drain off almost all of the water, till it is sitting in the bottom of pot under most of the carrots. (you can add more later if they get too dry)

  3. Reduce heat to just under medium.

  4. Add in sugar and butter and salt. You can add slightly less to start with. I use a squeeze margarine.

  5. Cover and let cook a good 40-45 mins, stir just a couple times.

  6. Test to see if they are soft and if they need more flavor or water, add if needed.

  7. Reduce the heat just a bit more and let simmer until the rest of your meal is finished. The longer they hang out in the hot water, the better they are :)
