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.
