Instructions

  1. In a large, wide-brimmed skillet, whisk together water, orange juice, honey, and cinnamon. Add carrot coins. Cover skillet, turn heat to medium heat, and bring to a simmer.

  2. Once carrots are simmering, leave covered and continue to simmer 10-12 minutes or until carrots are tender.

  3. Remove cover and simmer an additional 8-10 minutes, until excess liquid has evaporated leaving the carrots glazed. Stir occasionally.

  4. Serve immediately. These carrots reheat well and can always be made up to 24 hours in advance. Just cover and refrigerate in an airtight container. Reheat until warm (you may need to add 1-2 tablespoons of water if too much evaporated out before) and serve.
