Caramelized Carrots's been a while since I posted. That's because I've been so busy trying to keep up with the stready stream of fresh organic produced that is pouring into my house from our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture - see for more info) that we joined this summer. I have had to learn how to prepare many different vegetables that I've never eaten before! I've never prepared kohlrabi, bok choy, romanesco, cheddar cauliflower, dragon's tongue beans, italian roasting peppers and on and on. My serum phytochemical levels must be skyrocketing while my grocery bill is plummeting. Tonight we had a beautiful green salad with herbs, snap peas, cucumbers and hierloom tomatoes all from the farm as well as some boiled-then-sauteed-in-butter volunteer red fingerling potatoes from our own garden. But my favorite tonight was the carmelized carrots - some from our garden and some from the farm. Delcious! and easy.
