Jackleen's Velvet Carrots

45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
6 ingredients
4-6 servings
I got this recipe from a military community cookbook called "Dreadnought Delights." It is very easy to throw together and is nicer than just ho-hum buttered carrots. This is a very different way to serve carrots - baby carrots in a rich, velvety sauce with a tang of orange. Cook time is allowing for precooking your carrots and also heating the sauce, but is a rough guess.
