From the “Encyclopedia of Creative Cooking” [the big red book] comes this gourmet delight. Called for white grapes, I thought red grapes would compliment the carrots better and rather than the Cointreau brand, I used the homemade orange flavored liquor my darling makes from vodka. This dish is up there with the most decadent side dishes on the festive table. Never made it to a serving dish, ha, the two of us polished it off for lunch yesterday.

4 cups chopped carrots
2 cups large red grapes
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup orange liquor

  • Peel and chop the carrots and cook them in water to al denté.
  • Meanwhile wash and drain the grapes and drain the carrots.
  • Melt the butter on medium heat in a non-stick skillet.
  • Add the crispy tender carrots and grapes.
  • Pour in the orange liquor and slowly sauté, stirring often for 8-10 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
