Agrodolce is a sticky sweet-sour Italian sauce made from vinegar and honey. Spoon it over roasted vegetables or grilled meats for a pop of flavor. A fruit vinegar gives it extra depth.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.

  • Place carrots on a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; toss to coat. Roast, turning occasionally, until golden brown and tender, 35 to 40 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine vinegar, honey, raisins and orange zest in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Adjust heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until syrupy, 15 to 20 minutes. Discard the zest. Season with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

  • Spoon the agrodolce over the carrots and toss to coat. Return to the oven and roast for 5 minutes more. Serve the carrots sprinkled with parsley, if desired.
