Your Questions About Glass Carrots

Charles asks…

How do I make glass carrots?

I was watching the cooking show ‘Chopped’ not too long ago and I saw someone make glass carrots. I can’t seem to find any info on how to make them, but they look amazing. I’m guessing that they’re just glazed/dipped in a syrup, but they looked like they were coated with a layer of clear ice. Is it possible to just add whole small carrots to a pot of boiling water, then stir in sugar to make a syrup and quickly cool them? Any information or websites would be great. Thanks.

Nigel answers:

16 ounces baby carrots
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup water
dash salt
pepper, to taste

In a medium saucepan, combine the baby carrots with remaining ingredients. Stir to blend ingredients. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and continue boiling (uncovered) for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until carrots are tender and the liquid has evaporated.
Serves 4 to 6.

How do you make a glass carrot?

I was watching Chopped on the food network and one of the chefs takes a carrot and does something to it to make it look like glass. Anybody know how to do that?

Nigel answers:

Perhaps he put a glaze on it. There is a glaze called, “Mirror Glaze” which you can put on fruit while it is cold and it is super shiny. He may have put some of that on the carrot. Here is a link to what a mini fruit tart looks like with the Mirror Glaze on them:

Nigel answers:

You need way more than that. Eat as much as you want of healthy, clean calories and lots of protein. And then you have to do tons and tons of strength training in the abs and also in the arms, because you need arms to go with abs. Hope i helped:)

How to grow a carrot in a glass of water?

I put a complete carrot in a closed pot without any water, after a week very small white roots as well as green leaves were seen. Then I put it in a glass of water but its top is out of water. The small roots disappeared, but green leaves still are visible. What I should do, next?

Consult a book on hydroponics
