  1. Steam the carrots in a steamer basket over 1 inch of boiling water for 7 to 10 minutes, or until tender but still firm. Cool, and grate with a large holed grater. Mix together the grated carrots, honey, apple juice concentrate, parsley, and hazelnuts. Season with garlic powder, nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  2. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the carrot mixture in the hot butter until heated through.


  • To toast hazelnuts
  • spread the nuts in a shallow pan and roast in a 275 degree F oven 20 to 30 minutes or until skins crack. To remove skins, rub warm nuts with a rough cloth.
  • To clarify butter
  • Melt butter over low heat. When melted, let stand for a few minutes, allowing milk solids to settle. Skim the butter fat from the top and place clear butter in a container.

This recipe is excellent!

This dish was really good. I read through the other reviews so cut back on the sugar and used molasses instead of brown sugar. I didn't have a problem with it being too sweet at all. Not so sure...

Delicious blend of carrots and sweetness. Unfortunately, I didn't have any hazlenuts, but they still tasted great, especially paired with lamb!
