Slieve Na Mbam Carrots (Traditional Irish Dish) – Vegetables

12 Young carrots

3 tb Butter

1/2 c Milk

Salt & pepper to taste 1/2 c Heavy cream

2 Egg yolks

1 ts Chopped fresh parsley

Trim and wash the carrots and halve lengthwise. Melt butter over med. heat. Add milk, season with salt and pepper. Add carrots and cook gently until just tender. Remove from heat and stir in cream and beaten egg yolks. Reheat but do not boil, stirring constantly until the eggs thicken. Correct seasoning and add parsley. NOTE: The reddish crest of Sleieve na mBan (The Mountain of Women in Ireland) rising above the milk-white mist that forms there gives its name to this dish of cream-wreathed carrots.
