Thanksgiving countdown: 19 days! Get excited! I love Thanksgiving. Food, family, more food. Are you hosting this year? Going somewhere? Bucking tradition and not doing anything at all?
If you’re doing a traditional-ish Thanksgiving dinner, I have an easy side dish for you. You’ll need a Crock Pot, and I totally recommend the 6 quart Crock Pot I have. You can cook on high or low, set a timer for how long you need to cook the dish for, and then it auto switches to warm. PLUS! The lid locks on for ease of transporting. I use this baby all the time, it cooks evenly, and it’s worth every, single penny.
Enough of that. The recipe! This will feed quite a crowd–upwards of 20 people. Feel free to scale it back by half if you don’t have that many people attending your Thanksgiving.
- 5 lbs carrots (either whole carrots, peeled and sliced, or baby carrots)
- 1/2 c pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
- Prep carrots and dump in Crock Pot
- Drizzle with syrup, and sprinkle on salt, cinnamon, and ginger. Stir to combine
- Set Crock Pot on low for 4-5 hours
- Once cooked, top with chopped parsley. Stir to combine
Happy Thanksgiving celebration to you and yours!
