Method

Preheat oven to 425°F. On a rimmed baking sheet, spread out carrots and drizzle olive oil and maple syrup over top, followed by rosemary, pepper and salt. Toss until carrots are well-coated.

Cover stems of carrot with a sheet of foil to prevent burning, roast carrots for 25 minutes.

Remove from the oven and drizzle balsamic vinegar over carrots. Toss until carrots are well-coated, then cook for an additional 5 minutes.
