Whiskey-Glazed Parisian Carrots

Suggestions:

  • Turn the heat off on your stove before adding the whiskey.  This will eliminate any chance of fire.
  • If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s in your area, you can replace the Parisian Carrots with a two-pound bag of peeled and diced carrots.

Improvements:

  • Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of heavy cream to the sauce.
  • Add 1/4 to 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
