I eat raw carrots as a snack almost every day. I rarely crave them, but I always make myself take that first bite, knowing that it is worth it. The aroma of a good, local carrot still impresses me. It is complex and flowery yet earthy. Since I eat so many raw carrots I kind of forget how good they can be cooked. When a carrot is cooked, it goes from something that feels very much like a health food and becomes almost a dessert. These Cast Iron Maple Glazed Carrots are so tasty you might even feel guilty eating them. But with a simple and clean recipe like this one, you have nothing to fear.
