Craisin and Carrots


This was not as great as we thought it would be. We did a carrot dish a while back that I think we would rate as better in taste. The only thing we did not have was pure maple syrup but used pancake maple syrup as it was all we had on hand so maybe that is why it was not as good as the thought it should taste. If you out there in blog land make this and use real maple syrup let me know how it turns out.

2 lbs baby carrots
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup craisins (this is dried cranberries)
2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginge
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
salt and pepper

Cook carrots in saucepan with salted water covered. Bring to a boil.
Reduce to med heat and boil for 3 to 4 minutes till almost fork tender.
drain and set aside.
In a large skillet melt butter now add carrots and the caisins
Cook stirring frequently about 3 to 5 minutes till carrots begin to brown.
Now stir in maple syrup, and add ginger and rosemary, salt and pepper.
Cook until carrots are tender shiny and caramelized.

I thought these were delicious when you brought them over for our last get-together. I plan to make some myself. I will try with the pure maple syrup. I am sure they will rock!

(haha, the word verification below is "gastrate" of all things.)
