Apple Cider Glazed Carrots
2 pounds medium TSFF carrots
1 cup TSFF pure apple cider
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into bits
½ cup water
1 tablespoon cider vinegar, or to taste
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp. salt
Cut out a round of wax paper to fit just inside a 12" heavy skillet, then butter one side of the paper.
Add the scrubbed whole carrots to the pan along with the cider, water, butter bits, ¼ tsp. black pepper and ¾ tsp. salt.
Cover with the wax paper round, buttered side down.
Simmer, rolling carrots occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated and carrots are tender and glazed, about 50 minutes.
