Rosie's Gadgets.

Several of you have asked about the crinkled carrots in my stir fries.
Here's the gadget I use for my carrots. This is particularly good for sauteed caramelized carrot slices. Melt butter in your skillet. Maybe add a bit of oil to raise the smoke point. Toss in crinkled carrots and sprinkle sugar over. Mix well. Add in a little freshly ground salt and pepper. The ridges on the carrots darken with the caramelization and the inside remains crisp/tender. Other flavorings with which to accentuate this simple dish would be fresh dill, orange juice, sliced apples, or nuts and dried fruits. Take your pick.

Next time I'm in the kitchen store, I'll have to look for that. I love the look of those carrots and I can imagine all kind of other vegetables cut with it.

Thank you! I wondered if you saw my post. I will have to try my mandoline because it has one of those type blades.
