- I like to peel carrots before cooking or roasting them. If you prefer not to peel them, make sure to scrub them with a vegetable brush to remove all of the dirt and debris.
- Cooking time may vary, it will depend on the size of the carrots and how tender you like your carrots.
- Make sure to have a large enough skillet you don’t want to overcrowd the skillet.
- Don’t overcook the carrots. Check often to see how tender the carrots are.
- Cook until most of the liquid is evaporated, you will want some of the liquid to remain.
