Now, you will just have to let it cook. Kayli put her slow cooker in “high” and just let it do the cooking for five hours.

Step Four:

After waiting for five hours, you can then put the baby carrots in your slow cooker. Regarding the quantity, Kayli mentions:

“Just add as many carrots as you like. If you don’t like carrots, don’t add as many. Or, you don’t have to add any if you don’t want to!”
