Glazed Orange Carrots

Want your kids to eat more carrots? This tender side dish has a pleasant citrus flavor and a pretty orange glaze. It's a "must" at our family gatherings. —Marilyn Hash, Enumclaw, Washington

    I found the orange to be a little too overpowering for the carrots. This is not one of my favorite side dishes.

    These were delicious. We've finally found the recipe a woman at church used to use. There were never any left when she brought them to the potluck dinner. They have a hint of sweetness but it's not too sweet.TOH Volunteer Field Editor

    Made this recipe as part of our Easter dinner. Looked so pretty! Would cut the amount of orange juice a bit next time.

    It seems there are so many versions of this carrot dish out there. If you want to add an extra bit of sweetness, I think a really good maple syrup drizzled over the tops of the cooked carrots would really coax out even more of the sweet flavor of the carrots.
