Step-by-Step

    Fill the top portion of the vegetable steamer pot with carrots. Cover, reduce heat. Do Not Overcook.
  3. Remove top portion of vegetable steamer (with carrots still inside) and allow cold water to run throgh carrots to stop the cooking process.
  4. Discard anise broth, rinse bottom portion of vegetable steamer and return to stove heat.
    Melt butter, crushed pineapple and brown sugar to pot and stir until heated through.
  5. Add cooked carrots to pineapple mixture and stir very gently to coat. Allow carrots to heat through over very low heat. Remove from heat to prevent over-cooking.
