This is best with really young fresh small carrots. Small young carrots do not need peeling, just a good scrub. For a nice presentation trim the top so that a small bit of the green remains.

This is an easy holiday side dish. The carrots are sweet and buttery with a slightly spicy undertone from the cayenne pepper. But you can adjust that to your taste buds.


Note We used 2 lbs of baby carrots when testing. If using this option, you may need to cook the carrots a bit longer. The Test Kitchen
