Since I will be out and about in New Orleans this week, I will feature two side dishes that are a great addition to any meal. The first one uses a product that has been popping up for years, flavored vodka.
4 medium Carrots, slivered
1/3 cup Orange Flavored Vodka
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 teaspoon grated Orange Peel
1/4 cup butter
In a deep, 1 1/2 quart heat-resistant, non-metallic casserole, place slivered carrots and orange vodka. Sprinkle sugar and orange peel over carrots. Dot with butter. Heat, covered, in microwave oven, stirring occasionally, 10 to 12 minutes or until carrots reach desired degree of tenderness.
Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!
