Mohrengemuse (German Carrot Side Dish)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

A hot German carrot side dish translated from the classic German cookbook "Koch vergnugen wie noch nie." Not very healthy, but very tasty.

This is very tasty indeed! Loved the flavour blends, followed the recipe to a T and was rewarded with a great carrot side dish. I served it with my Cumbed Schnitzel and a potato casserole and Inez' Lemon broccoli. Thanks for posting.

  1. Wash and peel carrots, then cut them into thick sticks.
  2. Heat a large sauce-pot over low heat and melt the butter and sugar together until the sugar caramelizes.
  3. Add the carrot sticks to the caramel mixture and stir to coat.
  4. Add the hot broth,cover, and let carrots steam 25-30 minutes over medium-low heat (after 15 minutes, remove the lid so the remaining liquid will evaporate.).
