Glazed Carrots

ingredients

  • 1 pound carrots, approximately 7 medium, peeled and cut on the bias 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • Heavy pinch kosher salt
  • 1 cup good-quality ginger ale
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

procedure

dish: side
season: summer, fall

In a 12-inch saute pan over medium heat, combine the carrots, butter, salt and ginger ale. Cover and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove the lid, stir, and reduce the heat to low. Cover again and cook for 5 minutes. Remove the lid, add the chili powder and increase the heat to high. Cook, tossing occasionally, until the ginger ale is reduced to a glaze, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Pour into a serving dish and serve immediately.
