Whisky-Glazed Parsnips and Carrots

Yield 12

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup whisky
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 pounds carrots, peeled and cut into 2-by-1/2-inch sticks
  • 1 pound tender young parsnips, peeled and cut into 2-by-1/2-inch sticks
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

How to Make It

  1. In a large, deep skillet, melt the butter with the whisky and brown sugar. Stir in the carrots and parsnips. Press a round of parchment paper directly onto the vegetables. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook over moderate heat until the vegetables are tender and the liquid is almost evaporated, 15 minutes. Uncover and cook, tossing, until the vegetables are coated in a thick syrup, 1 to 2 minutes. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper and serve.
