I haven't posted a recipe since before the holidays, so it's time to get started again.  Here's a nice, simple recipe for carrots, which have suddenly become my favourite vegetable (it's a long story).

I also take recipe requests.  :-)


Glazed Carrots

(Terence and Caroline Conran -- The Cook Book)

  • 1 1/2 lb. (700 g) young carrots
  • Salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 stick (55 g) butter

Scrape the carrots or peel thinly with a potato peeler and cook in boiling salted water until just tender.  Drain off all but about 2 tablespoons of the cooking water.  Add the sugar and let it dissolve over a gentle heat.  Add the butter and let the sugar and butter mixture cook faster until it starts to brown, rolling the carrots and shaking them until they are nicely coated.  They will be sweet and succulent and have a good flavour.

Serves 6

Hey, the carrot thing was Tavi's fault!!!

Mmm... mashed potatoes... *imagines for a bit* Yikes! *tries to stop imagining*

Did you get my comment over in the other thread about Surkov?

Re: Who WRITES these recipes???
Just remember that you're the one who put carrots on the menu. I don't know if I'll ever be able to eat them in public again, thanks to the two of you. And I don't remember Tavi starting it (well, that final part that I can't quite bring myself to talk about here, yes; but as I recall, her writing partner had a not-so-shabby response of her own ...).

LJ notified me and I've flagged it as needing a response. Was it just the one comment (about not making assumptions about what might happen between the two of them)? See, Surkov is a blank to me at this point, which is why I had no reason not to assume what I did. Also, remember that I still haven't seen beyond what you e-mailed to me, so I still don't know what followed D's request (I haven't had a chance to look at any posts today).

I may have inserted the carrots, but Tavi took the bait! *stops* *rereads sentence* *tries to fish mind out of gutter*

Re Surkov - it's all just imagined and has nothing to do with Part X, but you'll see when you browse the other post. I think the boys need therapy - it's something I keep saying but keep putting off... but they really, really do.

Am heading to bed. Bonne nuit!

All I'm going to say here is that Kat's available. I think this needs to go offline now; will post privately.

I was just thinking that at least people will be very intrigued as to why a recipe for glazed carrots received more than a dozen replies... ;-)
