Bringing a little bit of honey with a mild orange flavor, this makes a great side dish for any meal. And perfect for weeknights too, these carrots can be cooked in either a slow cooker or a saute pan.
Full time slow cooker 3 1/2 hrs high 6 1/2 hours low
Full time saute pan 30 minutes (directions changes in brackets)
2 pounds baby carrots
1 large orange
1/2 cup honey
2 tbsp butter, diced into 8 pieces
1/2 tsp salt
Saute only: 1 tbsp olive oil
In your slowcooker place baby carrots. (Saute heat pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes with olive oil, then place in carrots)
Add in diced butter.
Drizzle honey over top of carrots.
Juice orange over carrots.
Cover with lid and let cook on high for 3 hours and low for 6 hours. (Saute cover with lid and cook 20 minutes lowering heat to medium low. Stir every 5-6 minutes to create even cooking.)
Once tender and easily pierced with a fork, move to serving bowl. Cheers!
