Sous Vide Carrots
These lightly sweetened and buttery carrots are cooked to perfection using a sous vide immersion cooker. While it does take longer than other methods, the carrot flavor is much more pronounced because you're cooking the carrots in their own juices. They are finished under the broiler for extra caramelized sweetness. I like to use small carrots, sold in bunches with green tops attached; trim down the greens, and lightly scrub the carrots for a rustic look.
If your carrots are larger, cut them lengthwise into 1-inch pieces, or increase the cook time. Carrots are done when they bend easily.
If you do not have a vacuum sealer, you may use a large plastic resealable bag. To use the water displacement method to seal a plastic resealable bag, slowly lower the bag into the water, letting the water pressure force the air out of the bag, then seal closed. Halfway through cooking, move carrots around in the bag so they cook evenly.
