“Unusual flavor with these carrots,” commented one of our potluck friends. “It’s really quite good.” There were nods around the table. This is one of my favorite cooked carrot dishes, but it is different and I wondered how my friends would respond. I now know it will be welcomed anytime I feel like making it. I suspect you’ll enjoy it too.

Add carrots to the water and boil for six minutes, just until tender. Drain, and place carrots in a container with sides. 3. Whisk together the oil and vinegar.
