Experiment with your favorite flavors
There’s a whole world of vegetables to be glazed, types of sweeteners to glaze them in, and flavors to add. Carrots are classic, but the technique works with any number of root vegetables (think beets, radishes, turnips, celery root, onions—the list goes on). Using honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar in place of granulated sugar is one way to change things up. Herbs, spices, and other flavorings add even more variation—curry, miso, cayenne, and balsamic vinegar are a few of my favorites, but there’s plenty of room to get creative.
