Most of us are desperate for more oven and stovetop space on Thanksgiving, so here’s a perfect dish to free some up, because this one cooks in the crockpot! It’s just sweet enough that kids will devour it – and simple enough to let them add the honey, butter, and parsley so they get a chance to cook on the big day, too!

Slow Cooker Honey-Glazed Carrots
adapted from The Slow Cooker Revolution
3 pounds large carrots, peeled and sliced on the bias, 1/4-inch thick
1 1/2 cups water

1 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1. Combine carrots, water, sugar, and 1 teaspoon of salt in your slow cooker. Cover and cook on the low setting until tender, for 4-6 hours.
2. Drain the carrots and return to the slow cooker. Stir in the honey, butter, and parsley. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper as desired. (This can be held on the warm setting for 1-2 hours if needed. Loosen with additional hot water as needed before serving.)
