Source: Martha Stewart

Tags: Carrots


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 to 1 1/2 pounds carrots with tops, all similar size and thickness, peeled and halved lengthwise, 1/3 cup tops coarsely chopped and reserved
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 sprig fresh rosemary


1) Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
2) Add carrots and season with salt and pepper; stir to coat with oil.
3) Let cook for 3 minutes, then add brown sugar and molasses; stir to coat.
4) Cook until carrots are tender and sauce is thick, 5 to 8 minutes, adding 1/2 to 1 cup water as necessary to prevent sugar from burning.
5) Meanwhile, heat grapeseed oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add reserved carrot tops and cook until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
6) Add butter and rosemary to skillet; cook until butter is melted. Remove rosemary and discard. Transfer carrots to a serving dish and sprinkle with reserved fried tops.
