Sorghum—also known as sorghum molasses—is the distinctive, syrupy by-product of sorghum grain. Look for it in specialty stores and gourmet grocers, or substitute molasses.
1 cup pearl onions, peeled
16 baby carrots, peeled and cut in half lengthwise (about 1 pound)
12 baby turnips, peeled and cut in half lengthwise (about 1 pound)
2 teaspoons canola oil
2 tablespoons sorghum
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450°.
Place onions, carrots, and turnips on a jelly-roll pan. Drizzle with canola oil, and toss gently to coat. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes.
