Camp Cooking Tip: When you are cooking over a campfire, you need to start the fire early enough so you have coals (rather than flames) at the time you begin cooking.

Prep your ingredients.
Camping Flexible Cutting Mats
There is not much prep work for this easy Campfire Glazed Grilled Carrots Camping Recipe!
You just need to chop some carrots and fresh rosemary.
I like using my Camping Flexible Cutting Mats for prep work at the campsite.
They are lightweight, come in 3 sizes for different tasks, easily clean and they hang on hooks when you are done with them … they look like a little piece of camp art!
Toss the carrots in a little olive oil and salt.
Grill the carrots till charred and softened.
Camp Cooking Tip: Place the carrot sticks perpendicular to the gaps in the grill grate to make sure you don’t lose the carrots in the coals.
It is even easier to use a broiler basket or a grill basket if you really want to play it safe and avoid grilling on the risky side. LOL
Mix the sauce ingredients and brush over carrots toward the end of their cooking time.
It is easiest to use a Silicone Basting Brush to apply the glaze to the carrots.
Make sure you use one that has a high heat temperature rating, especially if you are cooking this Campfire Glazed Grilled Carrots Recipe over a hot campfire or even a hot charcoal or gas grill.
You also want to protect your hands and wrists with Extreme Heat Resistant Gloves when you are cooking in those really hot environments.
One of my favorite recipe pairings for this Campfire Glazed Grilled Carrots Recipe is my Soy And Garlic Grilled Halibut Fillet Recipe.
They are both fast, easy and grilled.
This makes a great meal after a full day of hiking (or whatever your favorite camping activity happens to be) when you want a yummy meal that requires little prep and cooking time!
Serve and enjoy!
