Orange Ginger Carrots

"--Adopted Recipe-- Changes from Original: Increased the ginger from 1/4 teaspoon to 1/2 teaspoon, so the orange flavor would not overpower the ginger; substituted baby cut carrots for the whole carrots; changed yield from six to four servings to allow for more generous servings. Preparation time includes slicing carrots, and cooking the sauce on top of the stove, and "cooking time" is standing time at the end."

  • While carrots are cooking, combine sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg and ginger in a small saucepan; add orange juice.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens.
  • Cook 1 minute, then remove from heat and stir in butter.

    I up the ginger a little, since that flavor is popular around here! I also steam the carrots instead of microwave them - still very easy. Any ideas what to serve with this, as far as chicken and fish dishes?

    I really liked this recipe and so did my kids which is bonus. Anything that makes them eat carrots is ok in my book. Very simple and tasty we had it with pork tenderloin, nice addition
