This carrot dish is the perfect fall treat

Print this recipe
Nothing says fall louder than apple and cinnamon! The recipe below adapts these flavors — more common in desserts — into a tasty side dish perfect for any table. Baby carrots commingle with apple cider, apple jelly and cinnamon, with mustard adding just the right amount of heat to balance out all of that lovely sweetness.
You don't need to use baby carrots to make this recipe. You can also use regular carrots sliced into matchsticks, or even other root veggies like turnips, parsnips or rutabagas. However you slice it, it'll turn out delicious.
