Choosing Sides - Orange Honey Glazed Carrots

The 99 Cent Chef needs more roughage in his diet and a bag of carrots is one tactic. The Chef is not a late night knosher but on occasion he pulls out a bag of carrots to feed on.

Two pound bags of carrots are inexpensive at any store and 99c only Stores carry crinkle cut, baby or whole carrots.

As for a carrot side dish try out this 99 cent recipe, Orange Honey Glazed Carrots. You can use freshly juiced oranges or pasteurized orange juice from a carton to bake with the carrots, both often stocked at 99c only Stores.

1 lb. of carrots, roughly cut or any type of pre-chopped carrots
1 cup of orange juice
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tbsp. cornstarch dissolved in a 1/4 cup of orange juice
Pinch of salt & pepper

Bake covered 1/2 hour at 350 degrees with orange juice. Carefully add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch/orange juice to carrots with 2 tablespoons of honey. Cover and bake another 10 minutes until sauce is thickened.
