Spiced Glazed Carrots
How little it takes-warm spices, honey, orange and lemon juices, and a splash of olive oil-to transform carrots from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
4 cups sliced carrots (cut on the diagonal 1/4 inch thick)
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon frozen orange juice concentrate
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Large pinch of nutmeg
1 In a large covered skillet, bring 1 inch of water to a boil over high heat. Add the carrots and return to a boil; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Reserving 1 tablespoon of cooking liquid, drain the carrots in a colander.
2 Wipe the skillet dry. Add the reserved cooking liquid, honey, lemon juice, orange juice concentrate, oil, salt, pepper, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and place over medium heat. Cook the mixture, stirring, until heated through.
3 Add the carrots and toss until glazed and heated through. Serve hot. Makes 4 servings
