Spicy Pomegranate Carrots

October 7, 2014

Author Notes: As the leaves outside begin to change and the weather turns to that fresh crisp, Spicy Pomegranate Carrots open our palates to the sweet and warm flavors of autumn. The sweetness of the molasses blended perfectly with a touch of cayenne brings vibrant reds and oranges to the table. With the Jewish holiday of Sukkot coming up and Thanksgiving just around the corner, this dish is flawless.
