This colorful side dish can be tossed together in no time and is a good way to make use of any excess carrots you might have on hand. Let the carrots cook in the Sun Oven as long as possible. The slow, gentle solar heat brings out all their flavor and sweetness.
Sun Braised Carrots with Honey
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon honey
1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into rounds
chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Set Sun Oven out to preheat.
In a medium pot, melt the butter over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in the honey. Add the carrots, tossing to coat. Season with salt, cover and cook in the Sun Oven until the carrots are very tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Sprinkle with parsley just before serving.
