Recipe type: American / French
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 3 cups of carrots, peeled, cut into ¼ 'match sticks'
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 2 & ½ tablespoons of good maple syrup
  • 1 cup of chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoon of flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  1. Over medium heat, in a large frying pan with a nice, tight fitting lid, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter.
  2. Add the shallots and cook, stirring often, until coated..about 3 minutes
  3. Add the carrots to the pan and season generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Raise the heat to high
  5. Drizzle the maple syrup over the carrots and add the chicken broth...liquid should come to about half way up the carrot sticks (add more stock, if necessary)
  6. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-high, cover, and cook for 8 minutes.
  7. Uncover and continue to cook until the liquid has reduced by half and the carrots are amazingly tender...and have a nice shiny glaze...about 4 minutes longer.
  8. Transfer to a warmed serving dish...and garnish with parsley
