Sous-Vide Glazed Carrots


  • 1 pound baby whole baby carrots, peeled, or 1 pound medium to large carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks with the faux-tourné cut
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley (optional)


  1. 1

    Preheat water oven to 183°F. Place carrots, butter, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt in a vacuum bag and seal according to manufacturer's instructions. Cook carrots in the water bath until fully tender, about 1 hour. At this point, carrots can be stored in refrigerator for up to 1 week.

  2. 2

    Empty entire contents of bag into a 12-inch, heavy-bottomed skillet and cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until liquid has reduced to a shiny glaze, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir in parsley, and serve.
