With Rosh Hashanah beginning in two days, I’m still working on my small plates of sweet, delicious side dishes that will make up the main course. Next up . . . . Apricot Glazed Carrots! It’s said that eating sweet food symbolizes hopes for a “Sweet New Year.”
These carrots are so tender and sweet — they’ll melt in your mouth! They are wonderful over rice or served with a savory meat or poultry. They can act almost like a sauce.
And of course, if you’re not cooking up a Rosh Hashanah menu, these will be an ideal accompaniment to the Rosemary-Honey Turkey Meatballs we’re making tomorrow, as part of your cozy weekend dinner! Oh, and we should make a cake, too — after all, my husband’s birthday is in a few days. Let’s all celebrate! Shall we?
