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.

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.

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.
