Author Notes: Carrot sticks graced the kitchen table as soon as I returned from school as a regular snack before dinner when I was young. I envied my friends who came home to Mallomars and fruit punch in a carton. Now, I know I really was the lucky one. Fast forward to the 90's when I started roasting all of my vegetables. The sweetness that the vegetables take on from caramelizing were addictive and candy-like. I made these candied shredded carrots to put into one of my date creations but ended up eating them folded into some ricotta and sour cream that I mixed together. They can be applied to lots of foods, savory and sweet. Next, candied zucchini!testkitchenette
