Glazed Carrots

If your kids are like mine and carrots are one of the few vegetables they like, give this recipe a try!

1 pound baby carrots, or peeled & sliced regular carrots
1/3 c orange juice
3 T brown sugar
2 T butter
1 tsp orange peel
1 tsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
dash of mustard spice

Place carrots in a saucepan, cover halfway with water. Cover with a lid, boil until carrots are just tender*. Drain, then return carrots to pan. But butter in pan so it can start melting. Mix cornstarch with orange juice and pour over carrots. Add remaining ingredients, mix carefully so as not to break up the carrots. Bring mixture to a boil so the cornstarch has a chance to thicken the liquid. Remove from heat and serve!

*Be sure not to overcook the carrots; if anything, undercook slightly when boiling since they will be returned to the heat for the sauce.
