Spiced Citrus n’ Honey Glazed Carrots

Plated

I love carrots, especially the little baby one’s…These beauties are so sweet; right out of the bag! I decided to pair up these orange gems with our Spiced Citrus n’ Honey Finishing Butter Blend! This recipe is worth a try…Easy, Healthy and Affordable! The dish is perfect along side any weeknight dinner, but fancy enough for a dinner party or holiday meal. You can bet this dish will be served on our Easter dinner table! If you want the kiddos to try it, you might want to entice them a bit with a little brown sugar on top. You can also add the brown sugar when finishing the glaze, right before serving!

¼ C. brandy (orange juice may be used as a substitute)
