Quatre Épices Glazed Carrots
These carrots are a great holiday side. I buy the little Chantenary variety and then glaze them in a traditional French way, with butter and water, to steam and gloss them. But the secret is the addition of a pinch of quatre épices—a blend of ground ginger, nutmeg, clove, and pepper—to add a savory but sweetly-spiced ring to them. Delicious!
