Glazed Carrots?

I want to make some glazed carrots tonight for dinner. I've read a lot of recipes that either call for honey, sugar, brown sugar or maple syrup. How to choose? Help me out and give me your best glazed carrot recipe. And I have made them before, but it was so long ago, I can't remember which one I used. I have baby carrots that need to be used.

    1. It's really a matter of taste! Which one sounds best to you?

        That's the problem. They all sound good!

      2. try this, maybe? saute in butter, add a touch of brown sugar, then braise in an oaky chardonnay and fresh chopped thyme. normally don't like oaky chards but it's good with the sweet carrots.

          Unfortunately I don't have chardonnay. Only Chablis at the moment. Will that work?

            sure! maybe add a little more sugar.

            LW's recipe below sounds really good - the ginger is what got me. love ginger.
            i bet you could do her recipe and then sprinkle some chopped fresh thyme on them - the sweetness with the herby thyme is really tasty.

        2. I like to poach mine in butter and then glaze with demi-glace'.

          1. They are good with a little butter and orange juice.
