Rum Glazed Baby Carrots

Dishing It Out With Clarissa




Last month while I was preparing Christmas dinner I decided instead of steaming one of those ready to cook bags of mixed vegetables, you know the kind with cauliflower, broccoli and baby carrots, and lots of baby carrots, and more baby carrots.


Wait a second did I just got off track with the baby carrots….


Yeah, well have you ever noticed those ready to cook bags have more carrots then cauliflower and broccoli.

These little orange gems somehow end up getting tossed out after spending a week in the fridge as left overs.


I thought why not do something different with these small bites of carrots. Now mind you dinner is going full swing and I am multitasking like a madwoman, when it hit me why not glaze them?


Yes i’ll glaze them, but not with more honey and sugar as carrots already have a sweetness to them…

About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
