Use Full-Sized Carrots

You can also make them with full-sized carrots, too. Just peel the carrots and chop them into 1-inch pieces. That takes more time, but it will still taste just as good.

How To Store Leftovers

Leftover glazed baby carrots can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days in the refrigerator.

How To Reheat Leftovers

These carrots microwave pretty well, so we suggest microwaving them until steaming hot. You can also reheat them on the stove top by mixing in 2 tbsp of water and an extra tablespoon of brown sugar, and an extra tablespoon of honey and mixing until steaming.
