Expert Tips

Instead of the sliced carrots, you can use 3 cups of baby-cut carrots, cut in half. If you don’t have crystallized ginger, you can use 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger.

Look for crystallized ginger in the ethnic-foods or spice section of your supermarket. It’s easy to cut the ginger with kitchen scissors, but run them under hot water first.

Sugared rosemary adds a festive touch to holiday dishes. Sprinkle fresh rosemary sprigs with powdered sugar, or brush rosemary sprigs with water and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
