Yum! I cut this down to a small serving ( one large carrot cut into sticks) and added a couple of slices of onion. To reduce cooking time I splashed them with olive oil then microwaved for a couple of minutes. I put them on foil and added the rest of the ingredients then roasted for 10 minutes at 450 degrees. They came out perfectly cooked, my only regret was making just a single serving. Made for PRMRT.
Muscovado, however, is unrefined and the "raw" of all cane sugar products. So I have to use brown sugar. Muscovado is UNREFINED brown sugar and has a strong molasses taste. It's in a natural state. "Barbados sugar", will work here too. It's well worth that little bit of effort. I will do this for Thanksgiving for a side! Doubled the recipe, love tham! Thank you!....Happy Cooking to y'all!....PRMR 2013.....Grpa
Made it for Thanksgiving covered dish. I used mixed color carrots and peeled and sliced lengthwise and then into 1-inch segments. I cooked the carrots first in the instapot for 3 minutes on high pressure using a steamer basked with 1 cup of water. Pressure cooking preserved nutrients, flavor and brightened the colors over boiling them. Then I roasted 40 minutes. Next time I will back the roast time down to 30ish. I used a squeeze bottle to mix and sprinkle the oil, vinegar, brown sugar. Then I sprinkled with sea salt, black fresh ground pepper and Penzy's Bavarian blend seasoning mix before roasting. It was delicious! None left at the end of the dinner. I used 3 lbs and tripled everything for 17 people.
