Original recipe yields 12 servings

Directions

  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add pears; cover and steam until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer pears to a bowl. Add carrots to steamer, cover, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes; add carrots to bowl with pears.
  2. Heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat; stir in brown sugar, honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until sugar has melted and glaze is slightly reduced, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Pour glaze over pears and carrots; toss to coat. Remove pears and carrots with a slotted spoon and transfer to a serving dish; sprinkle with parsley.

Much to labor intensive. Carrots can be steamed for 5 minutes, and then you can throw in the Pears for another 5 minutes. The recipe says simmer the butter/brown sugar part for 5 to 10 minutes. Ha! I didn't get to 5 minutes and the sauce was burnt. Just simmer until the brown sugar dissolves......and combine. After all this fooling around....my Easter dish "experiment" was a disaster. But I'll try the recipe again MY WAY!

Very good; I'm just not sure why the pears are needed... I don't like pears, so I left them out, and followed the rest of the ingredients. Also, I don't have a steamer, and I like my carrots cooked through, so I just boiled some carrot slices for about 7 minutes, drained them and set the carrots aside. Then I mixed the rest of the ingredients together in the melted butter - once it was all combined well, I added back in the carrots until they were well-coated. They were fantastic, and very close to what I was looking for, but I'm only giving this 4 stars because, like another reviewer, I thought the directions were much too complicated for something that didn't need to be. Thanks for sharing!

I had carrots and I had pears so I went for it. Glad I did. It is very hard to find recipes that the whole family liked, but this one was liked by 8 out of 8 at the Easter table. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because I save that for the "really really gotta try this" recipes. This is a good safe vegetable side dish with just a little wow factor. As a side note: It seemed like you may not need all of the glaze. Flavor is right, just might be good with a little less.
