Melt butter in a heatproof casserole or large frying pan over medium heat. Add carrots and onions and saute until lightly browned. Add raisins, wine, the water, salt and pepper to taste, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and braise, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender (about 35 minutes). Do not overcook. Remove vegetables from liquid with a slotted spoon and set aside. Raise heat to medium-high, uncover, and cook until liquid reduces to a syrupy glaze (about 10 minutes). Return vegetables to liquid and heat through. (This dish can be kept, covered, for up to 2 days in the refrigerator, and reheated in a covered pan over low heat or in a low oven.) Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed. Serve hot. Serves 4. TIP: To peel the onions, drop them into a saucepan of boiling water and boil 1 minute. Drain, rinse with cold water until cool, then peel with a sharp paring knife. *Universal Press Syndicate, 1998/04/08 >Riverside PE >Hanneman/Buster/McRecipe Story: Whod guess that a little white wine and a handful of raisins could bring out the best in carrots and onions? As the vegetables braise, the cooking liquid thickens into a sweet-sour glaze, giving the food an irresistible sheen. This side dish makes a fine accompaniment to roast chicken or beef. Its also ideal for entertaining because it can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator, then reheated shortly before serving. Recipe by: Annette Gooch, UPS Posted to MC-Recipe Digest by KitPATh
