Chef Suggestions
Serve as a side to your meal of choice.

For a thicker sauce: When carrots are done remove carrots from slow cooker with a slotted spoon and keep warm. Pour drippings from slow into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Add a mixture of 1/3 cup water and 2 tablespoons cornstarch to saucepan. Return to a boil and pour over carrots before serving.
