I really like this recipe. It has a nice zippiness to it. Makes boiled carrots a little more appetizing.

Recipe was simple, but my family really didn't care for it.

Sweet, tender and fruity! I used a whole orange that I blended in the blender for the juice. Then added the juice to the brown sugar, cornstarch, ginger and salt in a microwave safe dish and cooked it for a couple minutes till thick. Stirred in butter then added it to the carrots.I garnished with slices of chili.
