Carrots benefit from a slightly sweet, slightly tangy glaze flavored with orange juice, brown sugar and a pinch of ginger. You’ll love serving this recipe. It looks and tastes like a bowl of sunshine.

1 pound fresh carrots
1-1/2 cups orange juice
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1-1/2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Mint leaves for garnish

Scrub the carrots and cut into 2 – 3 inch pieces. If the tops are particularly thick, cut them in half.

Steam the carrots until they’re just tender. Transfer the steamed carrots to a pretty serving bowl; loosely cover and place in a warm spot to keep warm. In a saucepan over medium heat stir together the orange juice, sugar and margarine. Cook, stirring frequently, almost to the boiling point. Mix the cornstarch in the water and whisk it into the hot juice mixture. Continue whisking until the glaze is thickened. Add the ginger and stir to blend. Pour the glaze over the carrots and toss to coat. Garnish with mint leaves.

Yield: 4 – 6 servings
