These really hit the spot. I used dehydrated orange peel and ginger powder and lots of dill. This is comfort food. Not bland at all. It really does 'glaze' up. I rarely post 5stars, but these are it.

This was a great way to prepare carrots. The dill and ginger added a nice touch, and the carrots were cooked to perfection--not too mushy and not too crunchy. I wasn't sure what a grated orange ring is, so I just used a little grated orange peel. But next time I'll leave that out as I didn't think the small amount I used seemed to matter much. Made for your win in the Football Pool.
