Cranberry and Orange Christmas Carrots

Serving up another killer carrot recipe - a Christmas twist on the @woodhillkitchen classic honey roast carrots.

Yesterday I finally got into the festive spirit. I put up A LOT of lights outside my house and cooked Christmas things and listened to Christmas music allllllll day.

These carrots are one for your Christmas spread, or maybe just next weekends Sunday dinner if you wanna feel like a Christmas queen (or king). I used Chantenay carrots because they happened to be in at my local green grocer and you know I can’t turn down a colourfull vegetable.

@woodhillkichen began in June 2020 after deciding I could not take one more picture of my food to sit on my camera roll unseen by the world. Be it home cooked or eating out, there’s nothing I find more satisfying than good food and getting the perfect pic!

Despite still working through lockdown, quieter weekends gave me the chance to experiment with new recipes and spend a little more time in the @woodhillkichen.

Proving vegetables don’t need to be boring and that cake is ALWAYS a good idea is my goal and I hope to encourage people to love their leftovers, shop small and support local businesses!
