Whiskey and Ginger Carrots

carrotsThis is one of my favorite veggie dishes!  I love Jameson Irish Whiskey, so using it in this dish gives me that touch of Irishness that I love to add to menus. This recipe serves 2-3 servings, but with me and my husband, it only gives only two servings.  We love our garden fresh carrots.


  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3 tbsp no salted butter (I use Irish Kerrygold Butter)
  • 4 large carrots ( about a pound), sliced into 1/2 circles
  • 3/4 inch of fresh ginger, sliced into strips
  • 2 tbsp Irish whiskey
  • 1/2 cup veggie stock
  1. Combine the sugar, pepper and salt in a small bowl.
  2. Heat oil and half of the butter in a large skillet.  Add carrots in a layer and sprinkle with the sugar mixture.
  3. Cook over a medium high heat until the slices are slightly brown on both sides.  Transfer the carrots of a plate.
  4. Wipe skillet with a paper towel to clean out.  Add the ginger and cook for about 1 minute until golden.  Add to the carrots on plate.
  5. Add remainder of the butter, stock, and whiskey to skillet.  Bring to a boil and then simmer until it is syrupy.  Return carrots and ginger to skillet and mix with syrup.
  6. Serve hot.
