Delicious & company-worthy! I made these when we had guests over today. They tasted wonderful and looked beautiful. I'm definitely adding this to my list of sides that I make for when we invite people over for a meal. I steamed 2 lb. of baby carrots. I mixed the glaze ingredients in a bowl and microwaved it for a minute and then poured that over the carrots. I had to make some substitutions because of what I had on hand, so I used peach jam in lieu of the dried apricots and used country-style orange juice concentrate instead of the orange juice and the orange zest.
