- 1 teaspoon cardamom seed, ground
- 1 teaspoon fennel seed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Combine all of the ingredients in a pot and stir to coat the carrots evenly.
- Set over a medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until tender.
A friend dropped off carrots plucked fresh from her garden and I wanted to serve them in a way that showcased the carrots without covering their natural flavors. I love the way cardamom and honey play off each other but was uncertain about the fennel. That said, fennel is a favorite and works so well with carrots I decided to go for it. Boy am I glad I did as these were just delightful and quickly devoured. My own version used light butter but otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks!! Made for Photo Tag.
Delicious! I halved the recipe and cooked down to make a glaze. Good and healthy too! Thanks! Made for Photo tag.
