Italian Carrots (1940)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

This is one of a number of historical recipes I am posting from my cookbook collection. It is adapted from Jessie Marie DeBoth's Cook Book, published in 1940. Per Lorimama's review, I've adjusted the prep time.

I was just expecting a nice side dish but this actually came across as kind of a comfort food (meaning the flavor was something from my childhood). Used a mandoline to make quick work of carrots matchsticks. Thanks for the post.
