  • Author: Julie
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 4-6 1x


These glazed and roasted carrots are tender and sweet.  Try to get carrots with the tops attached for a nicer presentation.  Bourbon adds another flavour that makes these carrots truly delicious.


  • 3 lb. baby carrots, preferably with green tops, peeled & trimmed, leaving 1/2 inch of tops attached
  • 1/3 cup pure Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 3 Tbs. good quality bourbon
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne
  • Kosher salt


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Position the rack in the upper third of the oven.
  2. spread the carrots in a single layer on a large heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet. In a measuring cup, combine the maple syrup, oil, and bourbon.
  3. Drizzle the syrup mixture over the carrots and sprinkle with the cayenne and 2 tsp. salt. Using your hands, toss the carrots to coat evenly. Cover the tops of the carrot with foil paper to prevent browning.
  4. Roast the carrots, undisturbed for 15 minutes. Toss and continue to roast until tender when pierced with a fork (about 20 minutes). (You can roast the carrots up to 1 hour ahead; keep them at room temperature on the roasting pan. Reheat in the oven, or serve them at room temperature). Transfer to a platter and drizzle with maple syrup and olive oil mixture. Serve warm.
