Instant Pot Glazed Carrots

I’m so EXCITED about today’s recipe! If you follow me on Instagram you know that my brother got me a Instant Pot for my birthday in September and I seriously LOVE MY INSTANT POT!!!ย โค

 

Well, I’m not going to lie the first time I used it I was a little scared. I don’t know, I felt like it was going to blow up or something ๐Ÿ˜ณ. So after I realized that I’m not going to blow up the house, I started making everything I could in my Instant Pot.ย ๐Ÿ˜€

 

And with Thanksgiving only a couple weeks away, I started trying to make all my favorite Thanksgiving side dishesย  in my Instant Pot to see if they would taste the same.ย ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฒ

 

Not only did they taste just as delicious as they would if I made them on the stove but it only took 4 minutes to cook these Brown Sugar-Glazed Carrots in my Instant Pot.ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    These are amazing. I only had 1lb of potatoes and didn’t want to cut the liquid down so I ended up with a bit less of glaze and more just juicey goodness at the bottom of the pot, but I didn’t know of 1/4 cup would work. Anyway, holy cow they are so tender, and the flavor is great, just like my mom would make on the stovetop. I always add a sprinkle of ground ginger like she did. Can’t wait to make these over and over!

    Is half a cup of water really enough liquid for the pot to come up to pressure? My manual recommends at least one cup…

      Everytime I’ve made these carrots I’ve only used 1/2 cup of water and never had any problems with my pot coming to pressure but if you feel better with using a cup of water…that would be fine too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was wondering what this would be like with a mix of carrots and parsnips

      Hi Donna, I’ve never tried it but I think it would be great. I would just set the timer for maybe 6 minutes. ๐Ÿ™‚
