I added lemon juice to the water in the steamer and, after the carrots were cooked, I mixed all the ingredients in a couple of tablespoons of orange juice over very low heat. Delicious recipe - thank you.
In spite of rocket scientist Brawny's remarks, my family found these quite delightful, and a very nice change from boiled or steamed plain carrots. I used naturally sweet mandarin oranges.
These are excellent. My family loves carrots and we'd never had them like this. I threw in some cooked pearl onions just for the heck of it. This one's a keeper.
These were not my favorite....maybe I didn't add enough orange rind or something.
I really enjoyed the freshness and tang of the oranges. I thought it complimented the carrots very well. I might try a little tarragon with it next time.
Thanks for such a lovely fresh tasting recipe for carrots. Will certainly be having them this way again. Cheers :)
Sorry....but carrots and orange juice are LOADED with sugars.... of course you didn't need to add any.
These weren't really anything SPECIAL... the carrots were oddly somewhere between raw and cooked, and the flavors just didn't blend very well for us. It was worth a try, though. Thanks for posting.
I thought these were just okay. The combination of carrots and orange just didn't work for me.
