Cracker Barrel Baby Carrots—talk about yummy. You can make sweet-tasting baby carrots at home. These are a favorite of many, the perfect side dish for any meal. Two of the qualities I love the most about carrots is that they are always in season, and they are inexpensive. If you don’t have baby cut carrots, just regular size carrots, you can use those. Simply cut them into 1-inch lengths.

Serve carrots alongside your favorite entree. The kids will enjoy the little baby carrots. These carrots are tasty and so easy to make!
- 2 pounds fresh baby carrots
- 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
- 1 pinch ground nutmeg (optional)
Rinse carrots and place in a 2-quart saucepan. Pour in enough water to just cover the top of the carrots. Cover the pan with a lid, place on medium heat, and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, until the carrots are tender when pricked with a fork.
When carrots are tender, pour off half of the water. Add the margarine, sugar, and salt and place the lid back on the pan. Cook until completely tender but not mushy. More salt may be added if needed. For a little flair, add a pinch of ground nutmeg.Print Recipe
