Welcome back to the All Things Southern kitchen, y’all! I’m going to have to ask forgiveness. I meant to send this out early enough for y’all to have these delicious candied carrots with your Thanksgiving meal and amid all the lovely chaos here, I plum forgot! You’ll want to keep this one close, though. They’re a treat anytime! (Seriously, they almost belong in the dessert category!)
“Simply Delicious Candied Carrots”
1 (4-oz.) package feta cheese, crumbled
Salt and pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 pounds carrots
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Folks, I’ve never really been a fan of candied carrots—at least until I started cooking them with balsamic vinegar and tossing ‘em with feta cheese. Things changed quickly after that. These little darlings deserve a place at the table.
We’ll begin by cutting our carrots lengthwise into long, thin strips. Then we’ll whisk together 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, with three tablespoons of olive oil before adding 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Now, we’ll toss our carrots in this dressing and place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet and sprinkle them with salt and pepper.
Bake at 400° for 40 to 45 minutes or until vegetables are tender and browned, stirring every 15 minutes. Transfer to a pretty serving platter, and gently toss with lemon juice and feta cheese. Enjoy my Simply Delicious Candied Carrots. That’s good eating from the All Things Southern kitchen to yours!
