Tuesdays At The Table - Orange Ginger Carrots

I don't know how it happened...but Thanksgiving is sneaking up on us (or at least me).  I'm starting to think about what kind of sides I'll be making on the big day.  Call me a pain - but I want to do something different, but don't want to rock the boat (aka tradition) too much.   I think these little babies ought to do it!

Orange Ginger Carrots
1 (1-lb.) package baby carrots, thoroughly washed
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 teaspoons butter
2 teaspoons honey
to 3 tsp. freshly grated ginger (or 1 tsp. ground ginger)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

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.

What's cooking in your kitchen?

  3. Thanksgiving always sneaks up on me. But my family never wants anything different, so I guess it's not too hard to plan!
    Thank you for hosting. Enjoy your week!

  5. Hi Cole,
    Your Carrots look awesome, I would just love them. I think I am a little late today, have been spending time with our new little rescue dog, Max, he is a real sweetheart. A Bichon Poddle mix, 3 years old, had been really neglected, but we are giving him lots of love. His photo is on my side bar, stop by and take a look. Hope you have a good week and thanks for hosting!
