I love carrots. Love them. And when paired with orange juice and maple syrup? Divine. I made these baby carrots with ham for New Year’s Day and they complemented each other wonderfully.
It’s a simple dish and the perfect side for any dinner.
Glazed Orange Carrots (Recipe slightly adapted from Taste of Home)
1 lb baby carrots, sliced
1/4 c water
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 c thawed orange juice concentrate
2 Tbsp light brown sugar
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp minced parsley
Place 1 in. of water in a saucepan and add carrots. Bring carrots to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer carrots for 7-9 minutes then drain.
Melt butter in a large skillet. Stir in the orange juice concentrate, brown sugar and maple syrup. Add carrots and toss to coat. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until glaze is thickened. Garnish with parsley.
