This dish is loved even by those who don't normally like carrots. The flavors blend together beautifully and the hazelnuts provide a nice crunch.

  • Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the carrot mixture in the hot butter until heated through.

To toast hazelnuts

spread the nuts in a shallow pan and roast in a 275 degree F oven 20 to 30 minutes or until skins crack. To remove skins, rub warm nuts with a rough cloth.

To clarify butter

Melt butter over low heat. When melted, let stand for a few minutes, allowing milk solids to settle. Skim the butter fat from the top and place clear butter in a container.

Terrific recipe. I used pre-cut matchstick carrots and cooked with apple juice and seasonings in the microwave for 3 minutes. Toasted pine nuts (didn't have hazelnuts) in a dry skillet while the carrots cooked. Added light butter the carrots with juices and honey (only 4 tsp based on reviewers' comments). Warmed together in the skillet for about a minute--9-10 minutes total time from start to finish. We loved this. Think it will go on the Easter menu.

I'm deleting this one from my recipe box. I like carrots just steamed with butter but I wanted to try something different for the holiday. I did not like it at all. The paprika or something made it spicy and the flavor combination was just weird. Out of 6 people no one had seconds so that tells me it's not just me.

This is an outstanding recipe for a "special" twist to carrots that everyone seemed to love. Even picky eaters seemed to love these carrots because of the different texture (shredded) as well as different taste! The hazelnuts added a nice crunch to the sweet fresh flavorful carrot taste. This recipe could be served with almost anything. My only complaint is I should have made more!

This was great. I'll definiatly take this to dinner parties. A little on the sweet side but I also used fresh from the garden carrots so I would probably cut back the sweetener next time...

Tanya! I have been looking like crazy for this recipe all night. This is my favorite Easter recipe and I was so sad to have lost it! These are terrific. I could eat these for dinner and nothing else and be very happy. Fantastic recipe! Don't you love the Jacksonville Inn? You are my hero!

Oh my! My boyfriend just ate these carrots at dinner and said "Wow!" Best carrots ever. The hazelnuts give such a great texture. I chopped my carrots in thick circles and they turned out GREAT.

This dish was really good. I read through the other reviews so cut back on the sugar and used molasses instead of brown sugar. I didn't have a problem with it being too sweet at all. Not so sure I'd use the garlic next time; there were enough flavors going on without it. It was an excellent accompaniment to the ham. Really easy to make it presented really well with the different colors and a favorite on the table.

Delicious blend of carrots and sweetness. Unfortunately I didn't have any hazlenuts but they still tasted great especially paired with lamb!
