Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup water
  • ½ cup apple cider
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 lb carrots (sliced crosswise into 1/3-inch pieces)
  • 2 cups apples (chopped)​​

Steps to Make It

Melt the butter in a large skillet over low heat. Continue gently cooking the butter until it turns light brown; remove pan from heat and allow the butter to cool for a few minutes. Add the water, apple cider, and cinnamon to the browned butter and return the skillet to the stovetop over medium heat.

Bring the apple cider mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and allow it to simmer for 2 minutes. Add the carrots, cover the skillet, and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Add a small amount of water to the carrots, if necessary. Stir the apples into the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes, until the apples and carrots are tender.
