Don’t let your holiday table be full of only green and brown food, Brighten up the table with these gorgeous and delicious carrots.
Orange Glazed Carrots
These carrots are just the perfect item to serve.
They only take minutes to prepare and they have such great flavors of orange and nutmeg.
These get requested all year long, so no need to wait for a holiday, but they do seem extra special so you can serve them to accompany any meal.
I used long thin carrots, you can cut the carrots into slices lengthwise or in chop them into disks, after all they are carrots and the shape won’t effect the great flavor.
