Whole-roasted carrots are an effortlessly glam side, perfect with ham. But the real genius here is the matchstick-sliced ginger that bakes with them. Candied in the glaze, it's a chewy, intensely gingery topping you'll be pinching right off the pan.
slender rainbow (or other) carrots, tops trimmed to 1-inch, scrubbed
fresh ginger, peeled and cut into matchsticks (about 1/2 cup)
pure maple syrup
freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees . Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil. Arrange carrots and ginger in prepared baking pan.
