How To Make sous vide essentials: cinnamon glazed carrots

    You will need a sous vide machine to make this recipe.

    If you are not using a vacuum-sealing machine (Food Saver, etc.), then you are probably using standard plastic food bags (Ziploc, etc.). To get as much of the air out of the bag, as possible, use the water displacement method. The easiest way to accomplish this is to slowly sink it into a pan of water, with the top open, and allow the pressure of the water pushing against the bag to force out most of the air. Then, seal the bag, and you are good to go. If I am using Ziploc-type bags, I always clip the bag to the side of the container with the zip-seal portion above the water line. One more thing, do not use the “regular” Ziploc bags; use the ones designed to go into the freezer. They are much stronger and less prone to leaks.

    Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  • 5
    Place the sous vide machine in a container of water and set to 185f (85c).
  • 6
    Add the dry spices to a Ziploc, or vacuum bag, then add the carrots, and shake to evenly coat. Then add the butter, and seal. In my case I am using a vacuum sealer.
  • 7
    If you are using a vacuum sealer, remove all the air and seal. If you are using a Ziploc bag, then follow the above instructions on removing the air.
  • 8
    Immerse in the water and cook for 1 hour. The carrots will be cooked and tender.
  • 9
    For a final step, empty the contents of the bag into a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • 10
    Sauté, until most of the liquid evaporates, and coats the carrots in a yummy glaze, about 2 – 3 minutes.
