RECIPE of the Day - 7/12/2007

These carrots are really delicious. The flavor is just the right blend of tartness and sweetness that complements the carrots perfectly. These are a great side dish for chicken or pork.

Orange-Glazed Carrots

8 large carrots, peeled and halved crosswise
2 C. wter
3 T. butter
Juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
2 T. light brown sugar
1 T. orange marmalade
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper

Boil carrots in large, covered saucepan over medium heat 30 to 35 min. until tender; drain well. Return to heat and shake pan gently to drive excess moisture from carrots.

Add butter, lemon juice, brown sugar, marmalade, salt and pepper and simmer, uncovered, over lowest heat for 30 min., shaking pan often until carrots are richly glazed.

Serves 4.
