Citrus Rainbow Carrots
“I grow lots of carrots and I’m always experimenting with ways to serve them. The first time I made this citrusy recipe for my husband, he said it tasted like Christmas! Although he calls them my ‘Christmas Carrots,’ they’re tasty anytime; I especially like serving them at Easter, with the array of carrots available in early spring. It’s easy to prepare, and can easily be doubled to serve a large group. To save time, I sometimes dice the carrots several days in advance.” —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

Test Kitchen Tips
- Rainbow carrots can be deep burgundy, golden yellow, jeweled orange or creamy white in colour.
- Be careful to only zest the outer layer of orange peel. The white part underneath is bitter.
- One medium orange will yield about 4 teaspoons grated orange zest.
