Jack Daniels Whiskey & Honey Glazed Carrots

(This recipe should serve 10-15 very generously - and up to 20 if there are lots of other sides on your table.)


1 cup Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey

4 lbs carrots, peeled & cut into 1/2 inch slices

2 1/2 sticks of butter (half a pound or MORE)

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

2 tsp salt

Pepper to taste

Chopped parsley or chives as garnish (optional but pretty)


Melt 3 TBS butter in a large saute pan over high heat.  If you do not have a large saute pan - do this recipe in two batches.   You want the carrots to come into contact with both the butter & the heat of the pan - and you do not want your butter to burn.  Add carrots & stir - sauteing them for 2-3 min.  Remove the carrots to a large bowl with a slotted spoon.  

Add the whiskey & let it saute for 30-45 seconds.  Reduce heat & melt the remaining butter.  Add the brown sugar & stir to combine.  Once a glaze begins to form - a minute or two - add the carrots back to the pan & stir to get all the carrots coated in glaze.  Cover the pan & saute over medium or medium-low heat for maybe 5-10 minutes - until carrots are cooked to your preference.  Add S&P.

If serving immediately - pour the carrots & glaze onto a platter & top with the parsley or chives (if using) and serve.  Or - set them away off heat & reheat when ready to serve.
