Orange Glazed Carrots

Rose Mary Mogan


This is one of the side dish items I plan to make for Easter Dinner. Our family loves them so I make them quite often. Sometimes I make crinkle cut with my special tool, other times I use baby carrots or crinkle cut medalions, no matter how you slice them they are always good. I like to add a pinch of nutmeg to enhance the flavors of the orange liqueur & orange marmalade. There is no need to wait for a holiday to make these they are great anytime of year or season. Try them I am sure you & your family will agree.
