All i can say is W.O.W. !!!!!
I saw Tom Kerridge making star anise carrots recipe on TV last week and just had to try it for Christmas Day. I wasn’t sure whether to take the risk but oh boy was it worth. it… i strongly strongly strongly recommend you try it too (when i say strongly I mean STRONGLY!

What you need…

10 baby carrots or 4 grown up carrotsthis will be enough for at least 4 to 6 people.
250g of butter salted or unsalted
400ml of water
150g of white sugar
4 star anise

What you need to do…
Peel carrots and trim as necessary. Baby carrots can obviously be used whole but the grown up ones can be cut into chunky batons… Tom uses a clean green scourer to scrub the baby carrots.
Put the water, butter, sugar and star anise in a pan and bring to a boil.
Simmer and drop the carrots in …
Continue to simmer until they are tender, about 45 minutes and the liquid is reduced to about a half!!

What to do next…

Eat and enjoy… And don’t forget to SHARE!

A very wrong dessert… Marsala Panettone Trifle! A unhealthy twist for a festive day.
An alternative to potato salad is the spicy Lime Pickle Potato Salad.
…and finally when you want something tasty and simple the day after all that cooking try Tasty Tortilla Treat.
