A quick and easy side dish recipe, written for cooking in the microwave with holiday cooking in mind when the stovetop can be otherwise occupied. It can also be done on the stovetop too of course.

Recipe: Glazed Baby Carrots

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 5 min |Cook time: 15 min | Yield: About 4 to 6 servings

  • 1 large (2 pound) bag of baby carrots, or about 8 medium sized carrots
  • Zest of one orange
  • 1/2 cup of fresh orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons of honey, pure cane syrup, or maple syrup
  • Pinch of mace or nutmeg, optional
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

If using regular sized carrots, peel and cut into sticks, thick rounds or chunks. Zest the orange and set aside; pour the orange juice into a 4-cup microwave safe dish. Heat 1 minute on high. Add the carrots and orange zest. Stir to coat the carrots. Cover and microwave 8 to 9 minutes on high. Stir again, then add the remaining ingredients. Microwave uncovered, for 2 minutes on high. Stir and check for tenderness; continue cooking in 1 minutes increments, on high, as needed until tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Note: This recipe was written for cooking in the microwave with holiday cooking in mind when the stovetop can be otherwise occupied. It can also be done on the stovetop of course. Simply boil the carrots in a pot with salted water. Drain and set aside. Combine all of the remaining ingredients in the same pot and bring to a boil. Return carrots to the pot and reduce heat to a low simmer, stirring often to coat the carrots. Season to taste.

Variation: Add 1/4 cup of bourbon.
