- 1 pound carrots
- 1 tablespoon cranberry juice (unsweetened)
- 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
- 1/8 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- Martha's Vineyard Sea salt
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- ¼ cup (about 2 small) sliced scallions, white and green
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
- pinch red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
- Trim and peel your carrots and cut them into sticks that are 2 to 3 inches long, and between ¼ and 3/8 inch thick. Combine the cranberry juice, orange juice and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl.
- In a large (12-inch) nonstick stir-fry pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot (it will loosen up), add the carrots and about 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and stir well with tongs. Cook, stirring only occasionally and spreading out the vegetables after every stir, until the carrots are browned in places (they should have lost their stiffness; some will be slightly blackened), about 10 minutes. Adjust the heat up if the carrots are not browning after a couple minutes; lower the heat if the carrots are browning too much after five or six minutes.
- Turn the heat to low, add the scallions and ginger, and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Turn off the heat, add the cranberry/orange/balsamic combo and stir until the liquids have mostly reduced and been absorbed. Take the pan off the heat, add the butter, and toss and stir gently until it melts. Sprinkle with about ¼ teaspoon more sea salt and serve warm.
