Honey-Glazed Cranberry Carrots

Yield 4 cups
A simple carrot dish like this is a bonus for the busy holiday cook.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 pounds carrots

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil 15 to 20 minutes or until glaze is thickened and coats the back of a spoon.

  2. Meanwhile, peel carrots, and slice into 1/4" diagonal slices. Place carrot in a large saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook 12 minutes or until tender. Drain well. Add carrot to honey-cranberry mixture; toss well.
