Recipe of the Week

Maple Glazed Carrots

A simple yet elegant side
dish using local carrots and
maple syrup


1 tablespoon ghee or clarified butter
2 pounds local carrots, sliced ¼ inch thick
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 cup local maple syrup
Sea salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons butter
chopped parsley for garnish

In a large heavy skillet, heat ghee over medium-high heat. Add carrots and cook until they start to brown, about 2 minutes.

Add broth, maple syrup, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Uncover, and cook over medium-high until carrots are tender and liquid is syrupy, about 8 more minutes more.

Turn off heat and add butter. Toss to melt butter and garnish with parsley.
