Slow Cooked Orange Glazed Carrots

I love using my slow cooker. I use if for everything from breakfast and dinner to side dishes and desserts. It is one of the most used appliances in my kitchen and I own several of them.

Today’s recipe is for slow cooked glazed carrots. I really enjoy the orange flavor in this dish. It gives the carrots a sweetness without being overly sweet.

Now this is not a recipe that you put in the crockpot first thing in the morning and leave all day. If you did that you would probably have a mushy orange mess at the end of the day.

This dish cooks for just a few hours, but I still find it saves me a lot of time in the kitchen because I can start it a few hours before dinner and it is ready when I need it.

  1. i’ll have to give it a try! thanks!!!

  2. Ever since I discovered how much better carrots bought with their leafy tops are compared to those in a bag, I’ve begun to love them. This recipe reminds me of one I used to make years ago with prunes — just enough for a striking color (and taste) combo that turns a carrot side dish into an elegant accent. Will be sure to try them in the crock pot!

  3. Mmm. Sounds great. I’ll have to get me some orange marmalade.

    IKWYM about it saving time, even though it’s just a few hours. I recently tried baked potatoes in the crock pot. It was great!
