“Caramelized and delicious. Use organic whole carrots for better true-carrot flavor. I use turbinado sugar because the crystals are bigger and they dissolve more slowly, which seems to lead to a better caramelized crust. I sometimes do a mix of half golden beets and half red beets -- then when I serve them, I fan the veggies out on the platter in a rainbow: golden beets, carrots, then red beets. Pretty!”
