Cooked carrots … does that conjure bad memories of school cafeterias and lunch ladies? I have to admit that I was not a fan as a kid.

My mom cooked them frequently, usually as part of a roast. Both my parents loved them, but I refused to touch any carrot that wasn’t raw and covered in dip!

Thankfully, my taste buds have matured, and now I love carrots, too. I think the key is all in how they are cooked … no canned carrots for me, thank you very much.

These Dijon-Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots are my favorite way to eat them, and I know you’re going to love this recipe, too!
