Slow Cooker Honey-Dijon Glazed Carrots

Doubling this recipe: A double batch is best cooked in a larger (7-quart) slow cooker. If cooking in a smaller slow cooker, stir the carrots every so often so they cook evenly. No changes are needed to the cooking time.

Method

1 Slow cook the carrots: Place the carrots into your slow cooker. Add the water and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt. Cover and cook the carrots on low for 4 to 6 hours, or until tender when pierced with a fork.

Drain the water from the carrots and return them to the slow cooker.

2 Add the glaze: In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining salt, butter, honey, Dijon mustard, sage, and black pepper until they are blended well.

Pour the honey-Dijon mustard glaze over the carrots. Toss the carrots in the glaze to coat evenly. Season with more salt and pepper to taste.
