Carrots and Lima Beans...and a Parkin Update

I served these as a side-dish for mushroom pies. The most difficult part of the deal is match-sticking all those damn carrots, but a mandolinne would make quick work of it if you have one.

You Will Need:

3-4 carrots cut into match sticks
2 cups cooked, frozen lima beans
1 tablespoon chopped, preserved lemon peel, or the grated zest of 1/2 lemon
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt/Pepper/Dried thyme to taste
(about) 2 tablespoons olive oil

Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the carrots sticks, and cook until they soften. Add everything else and cook until lightly browned. Serve hot.

Here's the Parkin. I'll see how it looks after a few days of storage before posting the recipe. Looks promising though-soft, sticky, smells like butter, sugar, and ginger. Hard to find fault with that!
