not your ordinary buttered carrots

IMG_0833, originally uploaded by organic baker.

alton brown inspired me to make this carrot side dish for dinner one autumn night. i remember he used ginger ale but unfortunately (or fortunately) i didn't have one. here goes my take on things - and i loved it!

bunch of carrots (with the green top still on) - sliced on a bias
water (no more than a quarter cup)
ginger (as big as your thumb - lightly smashed and sliced)
couple teaspoons of honey
a tablespoon butter
salt and pepper

combine water, honey, ginger and carrots on a saute pan. bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 5 minutes. uncover and allow most of the liquid to evaporate. add butter, toss the pan until a nice caramel develops. season to taste.
