Port and Redcurrant Glazed Roasted Root Vegetables - SCANPAN Review

My Christmassy Roasted Root Vegetables glazed with Port and Redcurrant Jelly are, in a word, delicious. Perfect for Christmas dinner or of course the usual Sunday roast.  So very easy to do too, and as long as you have a good non-stick pan you can't go wrong.

Usually I'd recommend you use a disposable foil tray since the honey can be hard to clean from a regular non-stick roasting tin.  But having been sent this beautiful Scanpan I put it to the test - would it be easy to clean afterwards?  Answer is yep it was a doddle.
Scanpan not only looks good but performs really well both in the oven and on the hob too.
 

Scanpan products are made in Denmark and the Scanpan roasting pan has a non-stick ceramic titanium coating and is metal utensil and dishwasher safe.  This roasting pan is multi-purpose too since it has a base like a frying pan and it can also be used in the oven, under the grill and on the stove top.


Scanpan looks and feels robust so you've no fear of it warping or twisting.  It also has a nice weigh to it.  Another great thing is you can use it straight from the oven and onto the hob (except induction), which means it's perfect for making gravy or reducing sauces.  I found the food cooked evenly and it seems nothing will stick to it - Oh yes the Scanpan is fantastic.

Easy to clean:
As I mentioned earlier this pan was very easy to clean too - nice hot sudsy water and using a cloth the oil and honey were surprisingly easy to clean off and afterwards the pan looked like it had never been used.
 
All in All:
This really is a fantastic roasting pan, it not only looks the part but it's sturdy, well made and certainly the best pan I've ever had.  Okay it isn't cheap but I say it's so worth investing in as I'm sure it will last an age.  I can't see that anything would stick to this and I love that it can go on the hob too.
My only fault find is that it isn't suitable for induction hobs which is a shame since I'm soon getting one.  If you want a proper, professional roasting pan then I'd recommended the Scanpan- you certainly won't be disappointed.

To serve 2-4 you will need:
2 red onions
1 brown onion
2 nice fat parsnips
3 or 4 baby cooked beetroot from a pack (be sure they aren't in vinegar)
12 or so Chantenay carrots
sea salt, black pepper
olive oil
runny honey
3 tablespoons of redcurrant jelly
2 tablespoons of Port
.  
How to do it:
Put the Scanpan on the hob and add the redcurrant jelly and the Port and cook over a medium heat whilst stirring until the jelly has dissolved and the sauce has thickened.  Pour into a cup and leave to one side.  Give the Scanpan a quick wash before continuing.


Cut everything into wedges except the Chantenay carrots since they are small enough anyway, ordinary carrots will need to be halved or even quartered depending on their size.
Throw the prepared vegetables into your roasting pan and sprinkle with a little sea salt and black pepper.  Drizzle with olive oil and runny honey.


Pop into a preheated oven 220C/425F or Gas 7 and cook for about 15 minutes, turn and return to the oven for a further I dunno about 20 minutes.  All ovens are different - keep an eye so they don't burn.

Once the veg are nice and tender remove for the oven and add the redcurrant and Port mixture you made earlier.  Stir gently to coat the veg and serve straight away with the rest of your Christmas turkey or Sunday Roast.

  1. Jan that pan is amazing! I hate scrubbing and I am clearly lazy as it honestly puts me off roasting with honey. The vegetables look fantastic too :)
