Glazed Carrots



What's up Doc? More vegetable side dishes.  One pound bags of organic baby carrots were $0.99  today.  Auntie EQ has a few tablespoons left of home canned Orange Marmalade made by her brother, Treasured Landscape Visionary.  Hopefully the combination will be a match made in heaven. 

Winner, Loser, or Meh

These were good.  We all liked these. They have a  light natural sweetness to them.  If I make these again, I will add a little fresh ground nutmeg just before serving.  If you are expecting a heavy syrupy style glazed carrot dish, this is not your recipe.  If you want a light natural and slightly sweet accompaniment to a meal, these are the ticket.

Recipe

I used a 2 1/2 -3 quart crock for this

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb baby carrots
  • 2 cups very hot water
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 3 Tbls butter or margarine
  • 2Tbls pecans or walnuts, chopped
  • 3 Tbls orange marmalade
Put first 3 ingredients in crock. Cover and cook until carrots are tender about 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.  Stir in remaining ingredients and cook on high for 30 minutes.  Serve.
