Glazed Carrots with Pistachios

Makes: 10 to 12 servings
Start to Finish 25 mins
Glazed Carrots with Pistachios
  • 3  pounds  small carrots with tops
  • 3  cups  water
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  cup  shelled unsalted pistachios
  • 1/2  cup  butter (no substitutes)
  • 1/3  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  snipped fresh thyme

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Trim carrots, leaving about 1/2-inch tops. Combine water and salt in a 12-inch skillet; bring to boiling. Add carrots; return to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until carrots are just tender. Drain carrots in a large colander; set aside.

3. Meanwhile, place pistachios in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring once. Set aside.

4. Melt butter in the heavy skillet. Add brown sugar and thyme, stirring over medium heat until sugar is melted. Add drained carrots. Bring just to boiling. Reduce heat and cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally just until well-glazed, about 10 minutes.

5. Transfer carrots to a serving bowl or platter. Sprinkle with toasted pistachios. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
