Here’s an easy side dish with only 4-ingredients that will help jazz up any meal.

These slow cooker carrots with apple glaze were a big hit when I recently served them alongside a yummy crock pot beer braised beef (that I will get posted soon).

Sweet and delicious, I’ll definitely be making them again.
