Glazed carrots

Here’s a favorite recipe that’s in our brochure. Credit goes to Jeff at Klondike Kate’s restaurant in the Yukon.

Ingredients

  • 3 large carrots
  • 1⁄4 cup low-sodium or homemade chicken stock, or rich vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. birch syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley (Italian flat-leaf preferred
  • pinch salt
  • pinch pepper

Directions

Slice carrots to desired thickness. Place in a saucepan, add stock and butter, and cook until liquid is absorbed. Drizzle the syrup on the carrots as they’re nearly finished cooking. Simmer for a minute or so until the syrup caramelizes a little. Remove from heat, add parsley and the pinches of salt and pepper, and serve.
