Maple syrup carrots lightly spiced with Merken are an ideal all-purpose accompaniment. To make an even more colourful dish, use multi coloured carrots.
- 2 lbs medium carrots
- 6 Tbsp butter
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp Merken
- ¼ cup maple syrup
Heat oven to 425 °F. If necessary, wash and peel carrots. Cut in two, lengthwise.
Evenly spread half butter in an oven-proof dish. Place onions in dish then place carrots on top. Sprinkle remaining butter on top. Salt and season with Merken.
Pour boiling water half way up carrots. Drizzle maple syrup on each carrot so they caramelize.
Place in center of the oven and cook until tender and golden and the sauce becomes thick (20-30 minutes).
