Maple Orange Glazed Carrots

Published by Elise Bauer in simplyrecipes.com on November 2010

Serves 4

If you double the recipe, you may need to increase the heat or cooking time to help the glaze reduce.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound carrots, peeled, sliced into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
  • Pinch cinnamon

PREPARATION

  1. In a large, wide sauté pan, heat the butter on medium heat until melted. Add the carrots and toss to coat. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then add the maple syrup. Cook for a minute more, then add the orange juice. Cover the pan and cook for 3 more minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Sprinkle cinnamon over the carrots, and stir in the orange zest.
