Perfect Carrots – Everytime!

Perfect Carrots

I don’t know if this recipe is in any of his books, but I saw it many years ago on a tv show with Jacques Pepin.  I have been making carrots this way ever since and they never fail to come out great.

Ingredients for Perfect Carrots:

  1. Carrots
  2. 1 tbs sugar
  3. 3 tbs butter

Directions for Perfect Carrots

Peel the carrots and slice them into any shape you desire ( ie. wedges or coins) and place them in a 2 qt sauce pan.  Fill the pot with water so that it just covers the carrots.  Add the sugar and butter.  Place a lid slightly ajar on top of the pan and bring to a boil.  When most of the liquid is gone the carrots will be tender and done with a very nice glaze on them. For 5-6 large carrots coin sliced should take about 20 minutes total time.  Pierce with a fork or tip of a knife to see if done.

For a truly unique twist, soak some raisins in brandy till they plump and when carrots are done, drain most of the liquid, add the raisins and about ½ a cup of heavy cream and bring up to heat .  Reduce liquid by about half and you now have creamed carrots.

  1. I love carrots but seldom make them unless they are going into a pot roast pan or another recipe that includes them. I will try this.
