Re: Cooked carrots?
I tried your carrots and they are so delish. I also made them and added some cubed potatoes to them - really good. The secret is not to overcook the carrots. I used fresh smashed garlic in them. Thank you for the recipe.

Re: Filled Scones

Hello Justi,

There is a little book called "Simply Scones" which contains the basic breads of the different scones. What I like to do with them is to take the scone bread, lay it flat in the palm of my hand and then fill it with yummies. For example you can make a basic cream scone dough and flatten it in the palm of your hand or on a bread board. Put 1/2 tsp of almond paste, 1 tsp seedless raspberries and then fold edges in to seal. Turn the scone, fold side down and brush with egg wash (egg yolk with a little water and whisk till light yellow). Sprinkle slivered almonds on top and bake. When nearly cooked, brush with egg wash again and sprinke Belgian sugar on top.

The possibilities are limited only by imagination. I have even made mexican green chili and manchego cheese filled those were fabulous.

Cooked carrots?
Hi, I was looking through your past entries, to find the scone recipe which I didn't (???), and read about yams and carrots. I love yams, just baked with butter and garlic. But I have a good recipe for carrots, called Carottes Vichy (I'm French, from France...) and here it is: slice cleaned carrots fairly finely, put in a saucepan with salted butter, a chicken cube and very little water. Shake often, cook till tender, about 10 minutes. Add lots of chopped parsley, squeezed garlic, ground black pepper. Stir it up and there you have it. I think it's wonderful, it's a childhood memory, but then I like most things with lots of garlic. I don't like carrots any other way (except possibly raw), try it and let me know. You get not only vit A but C from the parsley.

I did not find a basic recipe you developed here. I did find filled scones that sounded marvelous. Is that what you are talking about you said on one of these that there were scads of recipes available anywhere for scones. I want to make yours-where do I find it?

Must admit, I haven't.
But, I love scones and my new oven (the present one kind of died) is due any time. I will try it out and let you know.
