Maple Bourbon Glazed Carrots
This weekend, we celebrated Thanksgiving. I may live in the USA, but I'm Canadian, and Thanksgiving happens in early October!
We'd decided early on that we'd be having a ham for this Thanksgiving, and turkey for my husband's (American) Thanksgiving. Mashed potatoes were a given... but I had NO idea what kind of a vegetable I wanted to serve. I decided that I'd cruise the Minneapolis Farmers Market a couple days before, and see what inspired me.
As it turns out, inspiration hit in the form of a @mplsfarmmarket tweet - a picture of gorgeous purple and white carrots! I decided to do a up a glazed carrot recipe, featuring a variety of carrots. I decided that it would be a maple glaze, because, you know, Canadian. At the very last minute, I decided it would be a maple-bourbon glaze - and by last minute, I mean that my husband ran to the store to pick up some bourbon JUST after I got the carrots cut, and the potatoes were boiling away!
These Maple Bourbon Glazed Carrots were amazing - be sure to make more than you think you'll need, as they disappear QUICKLY.
|Interested in Gluten-free cooking and baking? You'll LOVE Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking!
How many times have you come across a gluten-free recipe claiming to be “just as good as the normal version!”, only to wind up with weird textures, aftertastes, etc? Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a “normal” recipe, and swapping in a simulated “all purpose” gluten-free flour… whether store bought, or a homemade version. “Beyond Flour” takes a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch. Rather than swapping out the flour for an “all purpose” mix, I use various alternative flours as individual ingredients – skillfully blending flavours, textures, and other properties unique to each flour. Supporting ingredients and different techniques are also utilized to achieve the perfect end goal … not just a “reasonable facsimile”. Order your copy here.
