We all desire to feed our families less processed foods, so we have been experimenting with making meals and dishes, using as many natural ingredients as possible. Cooking with crockpots this time of year is easy and nice to have a hot meal waiting for you when you get home, as the weather is cooling. Using a crock pot requires little prep and is easy to clean up. All of this lead to the creation of our honey glazed carrots; which are a perfect side to meals on cold winter days!
2 Pounds Baby Carrots
¼ Cup Honey
½ Cups Brown Sugar
¾ Tsp. Ground Cinnamon
½ Cup Orange Juice – *Note, Squeezing fresh orange juice is a way to cut back the amount of preservatives in this dish.
¼ Cup Melted Butter
In a large mixing bowl add the baby carrots and then the honey. Mix well so that the carrots have an even coating of honey. Then add the brown sugar and cinnamon and mix contents well.
Transfer the contents of the mixture into the crock pot. Lastly add the orange juice and butter and mix. Cook on high for 3-4 hours; until the carrots are tender and easy to bite.
