Recipe: Carrots With Character

A Side Dish With Cherries, Nutmeg & Ginger

These carrots not only have character—they have glamour. Maple syrup, nutmeg and ginger may sound like the holidays, but don’t save these for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.


  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced*
  • 1/2 cup dried tart cherries
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

*A 1-pound package of whole baby carrots can be substituted for the sliced carrots.


  1. Cook carrots in water in a covered saucepan 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain well.
  2. Add dried cherries, maple syrup, butter, nutmeg and ginger to cooked carrots in a 2-quart saucepan. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat, until mixture is hot and bubbly.

Makes 6 (1/2 cup) portions.
