Ingredients
  • 3   pounds 
    small carrots with tops
  • 3   cups 
    water
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    salt
  • 1/2  cup 
    shelled unsalted pistachios
  • 1/2  cup 
    butter (no substitutes)
  • 1/3  cup 
    packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons 
    snipped fresh thyme
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.
Trim carrots, leaving about 1/2-inch tops. Combine water and salt in a 12-inch skillet; bring to boiling. Add carrots; return to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until carrots are just tender. Drain carrots in a large colander; set aside.
3.
Meanwhile, place pistachios in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring once. Set aside.
4.
Melt butter in the heavy skillet. Add brown sugar and thyme, stirring over medium heat until sugar is melted. Add drained carrots. Bring just to boiling. Reduce heat and cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally just until well-glazed, about 10 minutes.
5.
Transfer carrots to a serving bowl or platter. Sprinkle with toasted pistachios. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
Make Ahead Tip
  • Cook the carrots and toast the pistachios the day before. Glaze and reheat carrots before serving.
