If you like carrots, you are going to love this simple recipe. They are cooked in a crock pot making them beyond easy and the sweet glaze is sure to make people want seconds.

Using a slow cooker to make your side dishes is a perfect way to save space on the oven or stove. It also allows you to do all of the prep work ahead of time if you are feedings guests or trying to enjoy a holiday with your family.

It also makes this a great make and take recipe. You can prepare them at home and start to cook them and then finish them off or keep them warm at your destination.

The naturally sweet carrots lend themselves well to a simple glaze. The addition of a bit of butter, honey and cinnamon makes them extra delicious.

The salt helps to balance everything else out. I think you will find it is a great way to make vegetables more palatable to kids and grown ups alike.

We like honey glazed carrots so much, it was time to make a slow cooker version. It makes things take a little longer, but completely hands off.

These carrots are great served alongside a salty entree like ham. So they are a perfect addition to holiday menus like Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter.

Making the carrots

Recipes really don’t get much easier than this. Just chuck a bag of baby carrots into a slow cooker.

Then add honey, cinnamon, salt and a bit of butter. If you want to change it up a bit you can easily use maple syrup or brown sugar instead of honey.

You can also add a bit of ground ginger if you like. Ginger and carrots go really well together.

For a thicker glaze, take the lid off of the crockpot at the end and leave the slow cooker on high. That will allow for some of the liquid to evaporate.

To fancy up the presentation a bit, you can sprinkle on some fresh herbs at the end. Chopped parsley is a great option.

For a spicier version, you can try using chili powder instead of cinnamon. Really the options are limitless, let your taste buds be your guide.

Will carrots soften in the slow cooker?

Yes, these carrots get nice and tender in the crockpot. They are sweet and have just the right amount of cinnamon mixed in.

Do glazed carrots reheat well?

Yes. Leftover carrots can be reheated on the stove or in the microwave. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

If I cook the carrots on low instead of high how long will it take? I have a split crockpot and I want to do roasted potatoes on one side and carrots on the other. The potatoes call for 4 to 5 hours on low. Any suggestions? I'm doing this as a side dish with my corned beef and cabbage for St Patty's Day. I'll have my other 6 crockpots going with the corned beef. Wanted to try your carrot recipe instead of cooking them with the corned beef. Thanks for the great recipes! Carole Forrest

It sounds like you are having a feast! I would do the carrots for 7-8 hours on low. They take a bit to get cooked. Or you could do them on high for an hour or two and then drop it to low when you add the potatoes.

I'm looking forward to trying this recipe, although not much of a cook. Lol. Love carrots, ginger and cinnamon. :-)

I need to feed 8-10 people. How should this recipe be adjusted? Can I just double everything? And does the cook time change?

Thank you for your help.

@Carlee, Thank you, Carlee. A couple more questions.

1. If I substitute brown sugar for honey, is it equal amount - 1/3 cup?

2. I will be traveling 1-1/2 hours to my destination, with eating about 45 mins to 1 hour after. Should I cook completely before leaving, keep them in slow cooker and then set to warm when I arrive?

Thank you again for your help. Dee

It's going to be great! You can double everything, I would add 30 minutes to an hour to make sure they all get cooked through. Good luck!
