‘Tis the season for cooking root vegetables and Christmas. I will definitely be making these for my Christmas dinner. There is going to be 14 people in my tiny duplex for dinner. So this is definitely the time to make the classics. These maple glazed carrots will please people that love both sweet and savoury dishes. Enjoy!

1 lb carrots, cleaned and sliced thickly on diagonal or use 1 lb of Baby carrots
1 tablespoon butter
1 tbsp lemon juice
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon thyme leaves (optional)
Cook the carrots in boiling water for about ten minutes or a chicken broth, until tender-crisp.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the ginger, maple syrup and lemon juice and mix to combine. When the carrots are tender, drain well and add them to the skillet. Add the salt, pepper and parsley or chives and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
