Aunt J's Orange Ginger Carrots: A Vegetable Side Dish Loved By All!

My grandchildren have already called me to check out what is on our Thanksgiving menu. They wanted to make sure I was fixing our "orange ginger carrots." This vegetable side dish is loved by all – young and old. One of our most precious aunts shared this recipe with our family. We have been enjoying it for more years than I can remember. I hope that once you try these delicious carrots you will be as hooked as we are!

You’ll need:

  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (McCormick)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Here's how to make them:

  1. Cook the carrots until tender. Set aside.
  2. Combine the sugar, cornstarch, salt and ginger in a saucepan.
  3. Add the orange juice and butter. Cook until slightly thickened. 
  4. Add to your carrots.
  5. Garnish with a little parsley.
