    A simple and tasty side dish from Fine Cooking. I don't cut the carrots as stated, I just use whole baby carrots.

    1. 1
      Cut the carrots on the diagonal into 3-inch lengths.

      Season with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Add the ginger, garlic, and shallots and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are softened, 5-7 minutes.
    7. 7
      Add the honey, orange juice, soy sauce and water.
    8. 8
      Cover with a round of waxed paper that fits snugly on the vegetables.
    9. 9
      Cook the carrots slowly on top of the stove, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender and the juices have formed a glaze, 30-40 minutes.
    10. 10
      Garnish with the mint.

      A bit too citrusy for me. I would cut the carrots next time as they took forever to cook. The mint added a nice fresh flavor. Made in memory of Lazyme's dh.
