Recipe Tips

  • Time-Saving: Or you may cook this recipe on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.
  • Bouquet Garni: Lay a 4-inch square of cheesecloth flat on the counter. Place 1/2 teaspoon whole cloves, 1 cinnamon stick and bay leaf in the center of the cloth. Bring the corners of the cloth together and tie with kitchen string into a bundle. 
  • Cooking Basics: True "baby" carrots are a seasonal vegetable available in spring and early summer and are sold in bunches with the green tops left on. They can usually be found in upscale grocery stores or farmers' markets. "Baby-cut" carrots are mature carrots that have been peeled and cut into small carrot-shaped pieces. They are widely available year round in the produce section of most grocery stores.
  • Serving Suggestion: Serve with steamed cut green beans and toasted pita bread wedges. For dessert serve a yogurt parfait: layer vanilla yogurt with toasted coconut and fresh blueberries or sliced strawberries.
