Off The Counter: Candied Carrots

 This week's Off The Counter features a recent obsession of ours:  candied carrots. After being rolled in olive oil, salted and sugared these carrot sticks become a sweet treat that even the most discerning vegetable eater cannot resist.  Take a look at how fun and easy they are for children to prepare.  Ingredients and instructions to follow.

Candied Carrots

Cut off  a little more than half of the carrot stems, leaving about 2 -3 inches.  Roll the carrots on a cookie sheet with olive oil, add salt and 3-4 pinches of brown sugar. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until they are tender and slightly browned.
