Use a large casserole or pan that can go both on the hob and in the oven. Put on medium heat and pour in 2 tablespoons olive oil.

When hot, lightly brown 500 g belly (streaky) bacon (cut into thin rashers) on both sides.

Do this in batches and set aside. You will need one rasher of bacon (or slice of ham) per carrot.

Turn off the heat.

Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).

Stage 6 - 5 min.

Cook in the oven for one and a half to two hours (or longer), until the carrots are soft, melting even.

Take the lid off after the first hour to allow the stock to reduce a little.

Stage 9

Serve with potato purée, for example, and pour a little of the reduced cooking stock over the top.

Remarks

Please note that if you are using cured ham instead of bacon, it may well be even saltier, so do be cautious with the seasoning - taste to make sure.
