GLAZED HEIRLOOM CARROTS
4 bunches coloured heirloom carrots, medium-sized, scrubbed with tops cut off, halved lengthwise
2 shallots, chopped
2 cups (500 ml) chicken stock
3 tbsp (45 ml) butter
1 tsp (5 ml) honey
1 tsp (5 ml) kosher salt
¼ small orange, zest only
2 tbsp (30 ml) chopped parsley, for garnish
- In a large shallow pan, add carrots, shallots, chicken stock, butter, honey, salt and orange zest (if your pan isn’t big enough for all carrots, cook in two pans). Bring stock to a boil, then turn down to a simmer over medium heat.
- Cook until carrots are just tender and liquid has reduced to a glaze. If there is still a lot of liquid, remove carrots from pan and turn up heat to medium-high. Reduce cooking liquid to a syrupy glaze consistency and add carrots in. Toss to coat. Place glazed carrots on a serving dish and garnish with parsley.
