Directions

Step 1

Melt 1/2 stick (4 tbsp) of the butter in a large skillet (with a lid) over high heat. Add half the carrots and stir them around to brown them quickly, about 1 minute. Remove to a plate and repeat with the remaining carrots.

Step 2

Pour the whiskey into the skillet, taking care if you’re cooking over an open flame. Let the whiskey bubble up and cook until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium low, add the other 1/2 stick of butter and stir it around until it’s melted. Stir in the brown sugar and some salt and pepper. Add the leaves from 1 of the sprigs of thyme, then add the carrots. Reduce the heat to low, place the lid on the skillet and cook for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and cook for another 5 minutes.

Step 3

Serve garnished with the remaining thyme sprig.
