Tips For The Best Results

  • When cooking glazed carrots in the crock pot, make sure to use baby carrots or cut your regular carrots into small, evenly sized-pieces. This will help to ensure that the carrots cook evenly.
  • Make sure to stir the carrots occasionally while they're cooking in the crock pot. This will help to ensure that the carrots are coated evenly with the glaze.
  • If you prefer your glazed carrots to be slightly less sweet, you can reduce the amount of brown sugar and honey in the recipe. Just be careful not to reduce the amount too much, as the glaze is an essential component in the texture of the dish.
  • To add a little extra flavor and texture to the dish, you can sprinkle chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley or thyme, over the glazed carrots before serving. This will give the dish a fresh, bright flavor and a beautiful pop of color.


  • Use different types of carrots in this recipe, such as rainbow carrots or heirloom carrots. This will add a pop of color to the dish and give the carrots a slightly different flavor profile.
  • For a little extra heat, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the glaze. This will add a subtle spicy kick to the dish and help balance out the glaze's sweetness.
  • You can substitute the butter in this recipe with coconut oil or vegan butter for a vegan or dairy-free option.
  • Add a little extra crunch to the dish and sprinkle chopped nuts, such as walnuts or pecans, over the carrots before serving.
  • Substitute the cinnamon in this recipe with other warm spices, such as nutmeg, cloves, or allspice.

Storing & Freezing

Storing: Let the carrots cool down to room temperature before transferring them to an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.
Freezing: To freeze, let the carrots cool down to room temperature and transfer them to a freezer-safe container or plastic freezer bag. Remove as much air as possible from the container or bag and seal it tightly. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight, and then reheat them in the microwave or on the stovetop.
