Susan is back with another great recipe: Glazed Carrots in the Crock Pot.
Have you ever watched the cooking show called Hungry Girl? She has some easy recipes and really great ideas to turn comfort food into lower-calorie, lower new recipes, and fat treats.
Glazed Carrots Recipe
I couldn’t follow her recipe exactly on this one because I didn’t have all her ingredients, and I like to put my own spin on things.
Well, really, it is very different. But you know it is all about improvising.

Glazed Carrots In The Crockpot
- 1/2 cup Polar Fuji Apple Preserves
- 4 tsp Sweet Ancho Chile Relish (or substitute with Raspberry Chipotle or Plum Chipotle…)
- 2 1/2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)
- 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- 2 lbs sliced regular carrots (I don’t like baby carrots but if you do…..)
- 1 onion sliced
- 1 sliced red bell pepper
- 1 sliced jalapeno (no seeds and veins)
Place carrots and the rest of the ingredients in the slow cooker and stir it up.
Cook carrots on medium-high heat to high heat for 4 hour cooking time or on low for 7-8 hours or until you have tender carrots.
This had just enough heat to make it quite different. I decided after I cooked it that I would leave out part or all of the cinnamon and nutmeg. But that is just me.
The preserves and relish had plenty of flavors without the extra spices. However, the Cayenne pepper was a really great touch.
