"The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution." -Paul Cezanne

The refrigerator light goes on...

I love carrots. I love spice. I love sweet and this recipe has all three and is a great complement to almost any meal.


My first contact using this lovely hot sauce was when a friend returned from Tunisia with a can for me as a gift. I cooked with it almost every night for two weeks. Harrissa is a spicy, bright red sauce that is easily available in Middle Eastern grocery stores. Like tomato paste, I like to purchase it in tubes for easiest storage.
