Orange Carrots Recipe

I’m always looking for ways to add vegetables to our meals so my little girl will eat them. This one was a success around the dinner table. I found the recipe in the Parents Magazine May 2012  issue.

Orange Carrots
1 lb. packaged baby carrots
1/2 cup orange juice
2 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons raisins
1 tsp. finely shredded orange peel (optional)

1. In a large, deep skillet, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Add carrots and return to boiling. Reduce heat. Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes or until tender. Drain and return to pan.

2. Stir in orange juice, honey, and raisins. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer uncovered for 5-8 minutes or until liquid is syrupy and carrots are glazed. Serve topped with orange peel if you want.
