Apple Cider Glazed Carrots make your kitchen smell like Fall! This two-ingredient veggie side dish is quick, easy, and will have you devouring carrots.



  • 8 large carrots, peeled and sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider (juice pressed from apples, unfiltered) – you can also use apple juice


  1. In a wide skillet or shallow saucepan, add the carrots and apple cider.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a medium simmer.
  3. Cook for 8-10 minutes, or until carrots are cooked to your liking.
  4. If the apple cider hasn’t reduced to a thin syrup, strain the carrots into a bowl and reserve the remaining liquid.
  5. Cook down the remaining apple cider over medium heat until a thin syrup forms.
  6. Add the carrots back to the pan and toss to coat in the apple cider syrup.
  7. Serve warm, they won’t have time to get cold anyway. 🙂
