Slow Cooker Florida Sunshine Carrots

It’s not that I don’t like carrots. It’s just that they aren’t the first thing I think of when I am coming up with a side dish for dinner. They just don’t wow me. Or rather, they didn’t used to wow me. These slow cooker Florida Sunshine carrots changed that. This is about the easiest recipe ever. And the best. The end result was flavor-packed, tender carrots that have a slight sweetness to them. And a slight pineapple flavor that makes them even more special. I actually could not stop eating them!

Slow Cooker Florida Sunshine Carrots

The recipe for these slow cooker Florida Sunshine carrots came from a wonderful cookbook, The Southern Slow Cooker Bible. It is packed with recipe after recipe of delicious southern-inspired dishes. I can’t recommend it enough. Heck, I got this wonderful side from it. It made a carrot lover out of me!

I did not garnish these carrots with toasted coconut like the original recipe stated. After tasting the carrots right out of the slow cooker I decided that they were perfect as they were. Yeah, I love coconut, and it’s hard to turn it down, but I really felt I’d enjoy this side dish as-is. And I did! Maybe I’ll add coconut next time.

I skipped the coconut because the carrots are amazing without it.
