Calories: 2078


  • 1 pound carrots
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger


  • Peel the carrots, then grate them on a fine grater. Put the grated carrots and the sugar in a heavy pan, placed on a low heat. Stir the contents until the sugar has dissolved, then reduce the heat even further by putting an asbestos mat under the pot.
  • Rinse an 8 x 12-inch jellyroll pan or nonstick griddle pan under running water and keep it damp.
  • Continue to cook the carrots, stirring frequently, until the mixture is very thick, about 10 minutes.
  • Test the mixture by dropping a little into a cup of cold water; if it sets hard as it touches the water, candy is ready.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and immediately stir in the nuts and ginger.
  • Pour the mixture quickly onto the damp surface of the jellyroll or griddle pan.
  • Let candy cool until it starts to set, then score 1-inch squares with a knife.
  • Let cool completely. When the candy is cold, break it along the score lines.
