Orange Spiced Baby Carrots


One of the foods, I keep, almost at all times, is a bag of baby carrots If you need a quick dish or have company, walking in the door, unexpectedly, grab that bag and you basically have a side dish, with a minimum of effort.  You can add a little brown sugar and cook for 25 minutes and it is done.  You can add some parsley and a little butter and there is another side.  Throw them into soups and salads.  Just keep that bag of baby carrots around and you will find something to do with them.
