Recipe Tips and Substitutions

To make sure your carrots aren’t over or undercooking, you can check them halfway through the cook time to see how soft they are. Some slow cookers are more powerful than others, so this will ensure the carrots don’t turn into mush or are still crunchy.

If you want to thicken the glaze, you can remove the carrots from the Crockpot with a slotted spoon and allow the glaze to cook uncovered on HIGH for 15 minutes.

Can I use regular-sized carrots for this recipe?

Yes!

You would want to get 1.5 pounds of regular carrots to replace the baby carrots in this recipe. Peel and slice the carrots and follow the rest of the recipe the same way.
