Ground ginger is more potent than fresh, so if you opt for the substitution, 1 tsp. will be plenty.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together all ingredients and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 to 35 minutes or until liquid evaporates and carrots are glazed.

Step 2

*1 tsp. ground ginger may be substituted.

I made this recipe as an after-thought to a lengthy Thanksgiving menu and this simple, but flavorful, dish was a hit! The carrots were perfectly cooked and added just the right amount of variety to the meal. Will definitely make again and again.

Delicious! The brightness of the orange and ginger kept these from being overly sweet like the glazed carrots I remember my grandmother made. I used powdered ginger, 1 tsp per suggestion.
