Laura Calder’s ‘Carrot Confiture

“I grew up having vegetable gardens, so we always ate fresh carrots," recalls Calder. "I’m used to eating vegetables at every meal, even for breakfast. This carrot jam is delicious on toast. Try this easy recipe and use it in place of butter or fruit jam, or on top of light cream cheese.”
