Maple Glazed Carrots

I like to make this side dish when I want to add some color to my meal. The touch of maple syrup is a nice surprise and so compatible with the carrot flavor. The crunch of pecans adds a special touch. -Sharon Bickett, Chester, South Carolina

    These were a cinch to make and very delicious. I wasn't sure if the maple syrup would be too sweet but it worked out great, I will make these again.
