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.

It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets. Feel free to cut and paste my recipes for your own use. Publication is permitted as long as it is in your own words and with your own photographs. However, I would ask you for an acknowledgement and link-back to my blog. Happy cooking!
