This is the best glazed carrot recipe. I came across it in my grandmother's receipts. It will intensify the flavor if you use frozen orange juice and make it strong. It's sweet, tart, and buttery.
- 2 lbs carrots
- 1⁄8 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ginger
- 1⁄2 cup orange juice
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Cut carrots into 1/2" angle slicesCook carrots until tender-crisp in sauce pan and drain.
- Mix sugar, cornstarch, salt,ginger, and orange juice together and pour over carrots.
- Cook for 3 to 4 minutes stirring constantly until thickened.
- Add 2 tablespoons butter and toss.
This really doesn't go with my salsa chicken tonite, so I may just have to eat these all by themselves. They are scrumptious!!!!! The only thing I would mention is that you might not want to heavily salt them while cooking, or if you do (I do), zap the salt in the recipe. I'll be making these again and again, and it will go down as one of my all-time favorite carrot recipes.
This is really good. The addition of corn starch makes the sauce glisten and cling to the carrots better. My family loved it. Also I made double strength orange juice from frozen consentrate. Needs no sweetener.
