Easy Orange Glazed Carrots (With Frozen Carrots)
Makes About 5 Servings
1 (1 lb) bag of frozen carrot slices*
1 Tbsp butter
1/3 to ½ cup orange juice**
1-1/2 tsp (or 1/2 Tbsp) honey
1/8 tsp dried ground ginger
¼ tsp dried dill weed
Melt butter in a medium size pot. Add orange juice, honey, and ginger and allow it to warm up enough for the honey to blend in. Add the frozen carrot slices and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to simmer. Allow it to cook until the carrots are as tender as you want and the liquid is reduced and slightly thickened. Do not allow it to dry up, as the sauce is what flavors the carrots! This may take from 9 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle the dill weed on top and stir to combine. Enjoy!
* Carrots can be used in this recipe while frozen. However, the sauce will have a deeper orange flavor if the carrots are thawed first by running warm water over them while they are in a colander. Allow them to drain well before using.
** Use less juice if you like more “bite” to the carrots and don’t want to cook them until soft.
