Root Veggie Medley

The garlic, butter and maple syrup meld together to a rich sweetness without being a heavy side dish on the Thanksgiving table. Kali and Ben Lennon of Plough & Stone Farm Tables shared this family favorite with us.

Clean and cut a mix of about 12-16 carrots & parsnips lengthwise and beets in thin slices. 

Press unpeeled garlic into "sliced side" of garlic press- about 4-5 cloves.

Take a cast iron skillet and put over medium heat. Melt about a tablespoon of Cabot butter. Add a pinch of fresh ground salt & pepper. 

Sauté garlic until soft. Add about 1/2 a cup of grade B Vermont maple syrup and stir until mix becomes Carmel color and consistency. Stir in carrots & parsnip.

Continue to stir for about 5-7 minutes so all of the carrots & parsnips are covered in sauce. Pop in the oven or on the grill for 7-10 minutes until tender.
