May is National Barbecue Month. I've posted before about the opportunity I was given by Four Roses Bourbon to participate. Here is the marinade I developed; always looking for a way to use those Costco carrots!
Four Roses Ginger Carrots #BourbonBBQ
Four Roses Marinade
1 cup Kirkland organic orange juice
1/4 cup Four Roses bourbon
1/4 cup Italian Volcano organic lemon juice (from Costco)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp chopped fresh ginger
2 cups Costco organic baby carrots
Add marinade items to sauce pan and bring to rolling boil. Add baby carrots and bring back to boil. Reduce heat and simmer carrots 15 minutes, remove to glass bowl with slotted spoon. Carrots will be crisp. Chill for four hours. Serve cold. Keep in fridge for one week, flavor only gets better.
The spiciness adds a nice contrast to sandwiches; I used them like olives or pickles.
Reserve the marinade and use to baste when grilling.
Thank you, Four Roses. This was really fun.
