DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the carrots diagonally in 1" thick slices. You should have about 5 cups of carrots.
  • Place 1/2 cup water, the butter or margarine, honey, 2 teaspoons salt, and the ginger in a large sauté pan and bring to a boil.
  • Add the carrots, cover, and simmer over medium-low heat for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and continue to cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until all the water has evaporated.
  • Add the orange zest and orange juice to pan, tossing with carrots.
  • Simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes, until the carrots are al dente (tender, but still resistant when you bite into them)and the sauce glazes the carrots.
  • Add the pepper and another teaspoon of salt to taste.
  • *This dish reheats beautifully. Undercook the carrots a bit and reheat them before serving.
  • The Barefoot Contessa served this with roast capon, buttermilk mashed potatoes, green beans with shallots, and pumpkin mousse parfait. I have the recipes in my private cookbook, if you want them please zmail me.
