Sweet Orange Baby Carrots

Sweet Orange Baby Carrots

This is a great side dish for holiday meals and it's super sweet so the kids always love it! I also sometimes do it as a mid-week side to chicken nuggets. Classy, I know! :P


*NOTE - the recipe as stated below will serve approx 4 people. If you are serving a larger crowd you will need to double or triple the recipe accordingly.

- 1 small bag of baby carrots
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 tbsp brown sugar


- bring pot of water to rolling boil on stove top
- add carrots to boiling water and continue to boil for 10 to 15 min or until carrots have softened to your liking
- drain water and return carrots to stove
- with burner on significantly lower heat (3 or 4 tops) add orange juice and brown sugar to carrots
- combine all and continue to simmer on LOW heat for a further 10 to 15 min

*NOTE - the juice and sugar will not thicken into a sauce, but the flavour will soak into the carrots as you boil the mixture. Best served with a slotted spoon to avoid a soupy plate. :)
