Happy Monday! With summer sneaking up, here is another grilling recipe….
How do you grill something as crunchy as carrots? By boiling them first! Try this the next time you are grilling – Maybe Memorial Day weekend?
Peel the carrots and trim the stems and leaves to about an inch or so above each carrot. Drop them in boiling salted water, and blanch only until barely tender.
Remove immediately and plunge the carrots into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Now you can put them aside for a few hours, or grill them immediately.
Coat the carrots with some balsamic vinegar, a little honey and melted butter right before grilling.
Grill the carrots side-by-side over medium direct coals until they have grill stripes. Turn them over.
When done, you can put them in the glaze bowl for a little more vinegar, honey and butter if you like.
Your guests will go wild over these grilled carrots!!
