Since the Slow Cooker North African Spiced Carrots recipe was a hit, I decided to try a sweet version in the slow cooker.

They turned out very good. The bite of the cayenne pepper added some needed spice with all the sweet.

Matches well with a good variety of meals. I serve it with spicy entrees often.

Ingredients
  1. 12oz bag frozen carrots
  2. 1 Tablespoon water
  3. 2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
  4. 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  5. 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  6. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  8. Salt, to taste (optional)
Instructions
  1. Grease 2 quart or less slow cooker with butter.
  2. Add all ingredients and cook on high for 45 minutes.
  3. Turn to low and cook an additional 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
Notes
  1. My 1 quart slow cooker doesn’t have a high setting, or any setting for that matter, so I cook it for 4-5 hours or until the carrots are tender.
  2. Using blanched carrots? Check a little earlier for tenderness.
  3. Using fresh carrots? Cut into 1/4 slices and add an hour to cooking time.
