This is a favorite side around here. We just love it beyond what words could describe. It is super easy to make and is also really quick for those nights when you need to throw something together for the family or to impress unexpected guests. I ALWAYS keep several cans of carrots on hand just for those times when I get a call at the last minute from someone inviting themselves to supper.
Yes, people invite themselves to supper at my house often. I am always asked…”Does that not bother you?”
No, it really doesn’t. There is always room for one more at my table. Always. I love nothing better than to spend time with friends and family…except being able to cook for them. So, let’s get to cooking!
You will need 2 cans of sliced carrots, some butter, orange marmalade and just a dash of cinnamon. If you don’t feed the masses, or have a teenage boy living under your roof, both of which I do…you can cut this recipe in half to feed a normal amount of people. I am not sure what a normal amount of people for dinner is though, it has never happened here.
Melt the butter, orange marmalade and cinnamon over medium heat in a saucepan until it is melted. It will look like a sauce and smell wonderful. Just make sure to stir it often so it doesn’t burn.
Drain the carrots and then add them to the butter/orange marmalade mixture.
Simmer, stirring often until the carrots are heated through and glazed with the sauce.
Serve while hot.
This will be enough to feed 6-8 people, depending upon the appetites of the people that you feed.
