Ingredients

  • 350g long, slender carrots, scraped clean or peeled
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tbsp apple balsamic vinegar (see tip)
  • 1½ tsp light muscovado sugar

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Leave the carrots whole unless they’re more than 2.5cm wide at the thick end, in which case halve lengthways. Cook in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Drain well, then arrange side-by-side in a small, foil-lined roasting tin. Brush them with the melted butter, sprinkle with the vinegar and sugar, season well with salt and pepper, then roast them for 25 minutes until tender and caramelised at the edges.

  1. Find apple balsamic (such as Aspall) online or in large supermarkets. If you can’t get hold of it, use ordinary balsamic vinegar.
