with toasted Pecans and Praline ‘lacquer

Recipe by Fitzgerald Dodd, Grits Southern Bistro

This is such a quick and easy side dish that can be made and paired
with smoked pork, steak and de nitely spice-roasted chicken.

Serves 4-6

3 pounds baby heirloom carrots, trimmed and washed
¼ cup cottonseed oil
1 tablespoon creole seasoning
1 cup pecan pieces, toasted
½ cup picked cilantro leaves


1 cup Steen’s Cane Syrup
½ cup heavy whipping cream
½ cup apple cider
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons kosher salt

In a sauce pot, add all the ingredients for the
lacquer. Bring to a boil and turn down to a
simmer for 10 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, toss the carrots, oil and creole seasoning. Lay the carrots on a sheet pan in a single layer and bake in a 425° oven for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and pour the lacquer over the hot carrots and toss. Return to the oven for 5 more minutes.

Remove from the oven and pour in a bowl. Top with toasted pecans and picked cilantro leaves and serve.
