From Cook's Country
We opted to roast our Rosemary Carrots in a skillet rather than the oven. We first browned the carrots in a little oil, then gently simmered them with a small amount of chicken broth for richness and flavor until tender. Slicing the carrots on a diagonal offered more surface area to brown, which helped develop flavor.
At first we merely threw in a handful of chopped rosemary in the carrots at the end of cooking, which resulted in a medicinal taste. We also tried infusing the oil before browning the carrots with a sprig of rosemary, but that led to little, if any, rosemary flavor. In the end, we added a sprig to the carrots with the broth instead of the oil. The water-rich environment coaxed flavor out of the herb, giving the sweet, toasty carrots a marked but mellow rosemary taste.
Serves 4 to 6
When stirring the carrots in step 2, be sure to do so gently to prevent the rosemary leaves from falling off the stem.
