14 days of Aphrodisiac Dishes -#10 Canadian Maple-Glazed Carrots

   
Also called a philtron, by the Greeks, which translates to “love potion”. Carrots are high in Beta-carotene and vitamin A.
In Ancient Greece, carrots were used in a drink to intensify sexuality. Sorry, I don’t have their love potion recipe, but, I have many others including this powerful antioxidant.
Here is a quick and easy one.Maple-Glazed Carrots I tried these carrots the first time I visited Canada.
It was an amazing experience. What was that white fluffy thing on the streets? Snow. For the first time in my life, I saw, touched and even tasted the snow.
There was this little restaurant in Winnipeg, MB, which name I don’t remember, they welcomed me with warm sweet carrots. Carrots and maple syrup. I got hooked! Hooked to carrots, maple syrup and snow. ;-)
What’s not to love about maple syrup? Now, add carrots, and you’ll see what I mean. There is not need to wait for a snowy day to enjoy this aphrodisiac delicacy.
