Bodéwadmi Carrots, Maple Syrup & Ginger

Kotchés’uk Inína’tig & Babōan (carrots, maple syrup, & wild ginger in Bodéwadmi-Potawatomi-)

Root vegetables are easy to preserve over the winter, whether you have a root cellar or a clean and dry pantry. This Anishinaabe recipe of these two favorite root vegies is super easy, loaded with nutrients, and tastes like sunshine.


  • Approximately 6-8 medium sized carrots

  • Approximately 1 Tbsp. diced ginger

  • 1 Tbsp. sunflower oil

  • 1Tbsp. pure maple syrup

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350* F/ 176* C

  • Cut carrots into bite sized pieces and place into small baking or casserole dish

  • Skin the ginger with a spoon and thinly dice, add to the carrots

  • Add the sunflower oil, maple syrup, salt and pepper and mixed (I use clean hands to toss but you can use tongs if you like)

  • Bake for 25-30 minutes and enjoy!
