I think I’ve mentioned that I’m not a huge fan of carrots but apparently Farm Box is because I get them almost every freaking time.  One of the few ways to prepare carrots that excites me is glazed in a sweet savory butter glaze.  I had a bunch of oranges in this haul so I found a recipe that used the sweetness of the citrus and lots of butter to accomplish this same goal.  I served it to a friend for dinner and there was none left so I know I’m not the only one who likes this combination.

Even though carrots aren’t my favorite I love the challenge of finding ways to enjoy them and I especially love when other people enjoy it with me.

Delightful Recipe


  • 1 pound of carrots
  • 1/4 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 3 Tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter
