Maple-Orange Glazed CarrotsHere’s a nice and easy recipe for the holidays. It comes from http://www.simplyrecipes.com.

Ingredients:

1 lb. carrots, peeled and sliced into ¼-inch rounds — or use “baby” carrots
2 Tbs. unsalted butter or margarine
½ tsp. salt
¼ cup maple syrup
⅓ cup orange juice
½ tsp. orange zest
Pinch cinnamon
Parsley for garnish

Directions:

In a large, wide sauté pan, melt the butter or margarine on medium heat. Add the carrots and toss to coat. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, then add the maple syrup. Cook for a minute more, than add the orange juice. Cover the pan and cook for 3 minutes more.

Uncover the pan and increase the heat to medium high. Stir the carrots occasionally, and cook until almost all of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat.

Add cinnamon and orange zest and stir.

Spoon into a serving bowl and sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Serves 4 to 6
