There’s a place at the lake that serves delicious spiced carrots, so when I saw this recipe, I went for it. And, it didn’t disappoint. Meet my delicious side dish, although I could just chomp them all down and call it good:
I started with one pound of baby carrots and halved the recipe. Add orange juice, brown sugar, butter and spices, and you won’t look back. And, a great way to get the kids to eat veggies, and would be a good holiday dish. Lastly, I made them in the crockpot so that made it even easier. Hope you enjoy as much as we did, and thanks for stopping by my site! Happy Spooky Halloween!
