Ingredients

1/2 cup sliced almonds

2 tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 pounds baby cut carrots

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1/4 cup sliced green onions

1/4 cup maple-flavored syrup

1 teaspoon ground mustard

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Cook almonds and sugar in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low, stirring occasionally, over 10-15 minutes or until sugar melts and almonds are well-coated. Spread onto small sheet of aluminum foil. Cool completely; break apart.

  2. STEP 2

    Place carrots in 3-quart saucepan; add 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover; reduce heat to low. Cook 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain well.

  3. STEP 3

    Add butter, onions, syrup and ground mustard to carrots; toss to coat. Cook over medium heat until bubbly and mixture is slightly reduced and syrupy.

  4. STEP 4

    Sprinkle caramelized almonds over cooked carrots just before serving.

Tip #1

- Almonds can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover loosely; keep in a cool dry place.

Tip #2

- Baby cut carrots vary in size. Very small thin carrots might require slightly less cooking time.
