I was looking for a new way to make carrots one night and came across a page from a magazine I had cut out years ago with this recipe. My son loved it! The dried plums -- prunes :) -- and orange juice gave a nice sweetness to this side dish. It's also fast and easy to make, which is a bonus on busy nights.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the prunes in half, and cut the carrots into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
  2. In a 3-qt. saucepan, combine all ingredients. Heat to boiling on high. Reduce heat to medium; simmer, stirring occasionally, 15-20 minutes or until liquid evaporates and carrots are glazed. Serve at once.
