    Serves: 6 

    • 70g coarsely chopped hazelnuts, toasted
    • 500g baby carrots, halved
    • 250ml water
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 50g unsalted butter
    • 2 shallots, minced
    • 125ml dry Marsala wine
    • 75g demerara sugar

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat oven to 150 C / Gas mark 2.
    2. Cut baby carrots in half crossways. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring water, carrots, salt, and 1/3 of the butter. Bring to the boil, and reduce heat to low. Cover, and simmer very lightly for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender but firm. Drain and set aside.
    3. Return pan to the hob over medium heat, and melt the remaining butter. Cook shallots in the melted butter, stirring occasionally, until translucent. Add Marsala and sugar, and stir continually until sugar is completely dissolved. Continue simmering until sauce has thickened slightly.
    4. Once thickened, toss carrots and hazelnuts with the sauce until well coated. Garnish with parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.

    I did like this... but why the need for the oven?  -  18 Jan 2014


    very good.we all liked it  -  15 Apr 2010


    I really liked the concept behind this recipe, but the flavor just wasn't there. These carrots were way too sweet, and the glaze would have covered at least 2 pounds of carrots. I would have to tweak this recipe to make it something I would cook again because of the sweetness.  -  27 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
