Brown sugar, butter and orange peel create a tasty glaze for cooked carrots.
Updated April 22, 2019

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb carrots, peeled and cut into julienne strips, or 1 1/2 lb ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel

Steps

  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat 1 inch water to boiling. Add carrots. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 6 to 9 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain and set aside.
  • 2
    In 12-inch skillet, cook remaining ingredients over medium heat, stirring constantly, until bubbly.
  • 3
    Stir in carrots. Reduce heat to low. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until carrots are glazed and hot.

  • Instead of the carrots cut into julienne strips or baby-cut carrots, you can use 1 1/2 bags (1-lb size) frozen sliced carrots, cooked as directed on the bag.
  • If using baby-cut carrots and some are large, cut them in half lengthwise so all of the carrots cook in the same amount of time.
