Bite Me Bit

"I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond."

-Mae West


2 lbs carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch sticks resembling French fries
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


1) Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with non-stick cooking spray.

2) In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and vinegar, stirring to combine just until the sugar melts. Remove from heat.

3) In a medium bowl, toss cut carrots with brown sugar glaze, salt and pepper. Place on baking sheet in a single layer.

4) Bake 15-20 minutes, until carrots are starting to brown on the bottom. Stir carrots and return to oven for 5-10 minutes until carrots are caramelized and tender.
