A touch of orange juice and honey makes these glazed carrots irresistible.
- 2 tbsp butter , or margarine
- 4 cups baby or regular carrots , peeled and cut into 2-in. sticks
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the baby carrots or carrot sticks and cook stirring, over medium heat, until they brown very slightly—about 10 minutes.
- Add the orange juice, honey and salt and bring to a boil. Keep the mixture simmering, stirring once in a while, until the carrots are tender and glazed, about 15 minutes or so. Young baby carrots will usually cook faster than older ones—so you’ll just have to taste one or two.
