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

Directions

  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. 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. 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. Sprinkle caramelized almonds over cooked carrots just before serving.

Recipe Tips

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

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