Maple Vanilla Carrots - Recipe Blitz

This is a sweet recipe for a sweet year.  Rosh Ha Shana, which starts Wednesday night is a Jewish New Year and Rosh means head and shana means year - head of the year.



Sometimes "easy" turns out to be the best.  These carrots are an example.  They are so very simple to make and they are pleasing to the palate.  The taste is subtle.  The maple and vanilla blend with the sweet carrot and go beautifully with almost any other food.  Perfect for the holiday of Rosh Ha Shana.  Perfect for any day.
