Recipe: Morroccan Sweet & Sour Carrots

3-4 medium sized carrots
1/4 cup onions, minced
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
6 tblsps butter [I used a lot less...maybe 3]
2 tblsps white vinegar
1/2 cup seedless raisins
2 tblsps brown sugar

Soak raisins in 1/2 cup warm water. Slice carrots [book says 1/4" slices; I went thinner to reduce time]. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan; add carrots, onions, nutmeg. When onions are lightly browned, add vinegar. Cook covered over low heat until carrots are tender [about 15-20 mins]. When carrots are tender, add raisins and brown sugar. Stir until raisins are heated through.
