2poundsbaby carrots OR whole carrots (peeled & sliced into 2-inch chunks)
¼cup (½ stick) melted butter
½teaspoonpure vanilla extract
Place carrots in the bottom of a slow cooker (I used a 6.5-quart...choose a size that's large enough to allow room for stirring). Stir salt and bourbon into the melted butter. Pour over the carrots in the slow cooker and toss until evenly coated. Cover and cook for 6 to 8 hours on LOW (or 3 to 4 hours on HIGH) until carrots are tender.
Drizzle cooked carrots with honey and vanilla and sprinkle with cinnamon. Gently stir until carrots are evenly coated with butter/honey/cinnamon mixture. Set slow cooker to WARM until ready to serve and stir well before stirring.
Adding 1 tablespoon bourbon does not make these crockpot carrots taste like whiskey. However, feel free to stir in additional bourbon if you'd like a stronger, more noticeable flavor.
