- 1 bunch of carrots, peeled
- 1 large orange
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons butter
- Olive Oil
- Kosher or Sea Salt
- Fresh thyme for garnish
Directions for Grilled Glazed Carrots:
- To make the glaze, juice the orange in a small non-reactive saucepan. Over medium-heat, add the brown sugar and butter and cook until the mixture is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Light one chimney full of charcoal. When all the charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and spread coals evenly over the charcoal grate. Clean and oil the cooking grate. Brush the carrots lightly with olive oil and place on the grill. Grill until crisp-tender, about 15 to 20 minutes, turning 4 times during cooking. In the last few minutes of cooking, brush the carrots all over with the glaze.
- Remove the carrots to a plate, sprinkle with salt and fresh thyme. Serve immediately.
