recipe: Pomegranate molasses glazed carrots are fancy enough for a holiday party but good enough to eat every day

Whether serving this at Rosh Hashanah, as I did, or for Sukkot (the pilgrimage festival which began at sundown on Sunday), or at Thanksgiving (it's coming sooner than you think!), these carrots contribute to the specialness of a holiday dinner. But they're so quick to prepare that they can even lend their color and flavor to an everyday meal, as well.
Pomegranate Molasses Glazed Carrots
1 pound carrots, peeled
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses (available at Middle Eastern markets)
Slice carrots into coins, about 1/4-inch thick. Place into a saucepan, cover with water, bring to a boil and cook over medium-high heat for 10 minutes until fork-tender. Drain, and return carrots to saucepan.
Add butter and pomegranate molasses; cook, stirring occasionally, just until butter melts and carrots are glazed.
Serves 4-6 as a side dish.
