– This recipe scales up easily if you’re feeding a larger crowd. Just make sure your slow cooker has room for all those carrots!
– On busy days, feel free to prep your carrots the night before and store them in the fridge. Then, all you’ll need to do in the morning is dump them in the slow cooker with the glaze, and off you go!
– Not a fan of baby carrots? No problem! Peel and slice regular carrots into thick pieces and watch them turn into candy right in your slow cooker.
