FAQs and tips on making glazed carrots

Can I make glazed carrots ahead of time?

They will always taste best when made fresh, but if you want to prepare them ahead of time you could reheat them in a skillet with a bit more butter to freshen them up.

Can you overcook carrots?

The longer you cook them, the softer they will get. If you want your carrots to be softer try cooking them for 3-4 more minutes and check them again so they do not get mushy.

Should I soak the carrots in water before cooking them?

Soaking carrots in water will allow water to absorb into them causing them to become crisper, or if they are becoming limp it will revive them. We are cooking them in water so it is not necessary in this case.
