Brandied Carrots

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by mersaydees

Based on a recipe from The Fresh Vegetable Cookbook from Nitty Gritty Productions. This is one of the first cookbooks I’ve owned, a gift from a dear friend who desperately wanted to see me cook my way to health and happiness. These carrots are so good that my DH even asks for them – and he normally despises carrots!

Delicious carrots mersaydees. I followed exactly as written, I think I may have just overcooked them a touch, but they were still wonderful. I didn't really taste the brandy in them but the flavours were great. Nutty, buttery with a slight natural sweetness! Yummy! And just so easy to make whilst the rest of the dinner is cooking. Will make this again as the family loved them. Thansk mersaydees.
