For this decidedly modern take on French glazed carrots, Jean-Georges Vongerichten swaps in a fragrant elderflower cordial for sugar and gives the glaze an unexpected kick with crushed pink peppercorns.    More Carrot Recipes  

How to Make It

Step 1    

Arrange the carrots in a single layer in a skillet just large enough to hold them. Add the olive oil, a pinch of salt and just enough water to cover. Simmer over moderate heat until the carrots are tender, about 45 minutes.

Step 2    

Add the orange and lemon juices, elderflower cordial and pink peppercorns to the saucepan and simmer for 3 minutes.

Step 3    

Remove the pan from heat and swirl in the butter. Stir in the cilantro, season with salt and serve.

Make Ahead

The carrots can be prepared through Step 2 and refrigerated overnight. Reheat gently before proceeding.
