What better to go with perfect roast chicken than perfect carrots? Heston’s recipe features no water at all – the outer membrane of carrots is desperate to leach flavour so by keeping all the goodies in the pan you should have the fullest flavour carrots going.
Heston Blumenthal’s perfect carrots (serves 4):
4 carrots, sliced about 1cm thick
- Melt the butter gently in a pan and place the carrots in one layer. Cook gently, with only a slight sizzle.
- Cook for 45 minutes until knife tender, turning once during cooking. Season with salt and pepper.
