How to Boil Carrots
Before we add any of the flavor, we need to cook the carrots to get them tender. It’s so easy to do this with baby carrots since they’re already softer than regular carrots and they’re so uniform in size.
Add carrots to a medium saucepan and add about 1 cup of water. Bring it to a boil over medium high heat.
Once you get the boil going, reduce heat to medium low and cover with a lid. Continue simmer for about 7-10 minutes or until the carrots are fork tender.
Drain the water and keep the carrots in the pan. Add 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of ranch seasoning mix to the carrots. Stir to combine and cook until everything is melted together and the carrots are well coated.
How Much is in a Packet of Ranch Seasoning?
A packet of dry ranch seasoning is 1 ounce which is equal to about 2 tablespoons.
I use a homemade ranch seasoning that I make myself because it’s so simple and a lot cheaper! If you do use a homemade seasoning mix, use about 2 tablespoons for this recipe.
