elaine,
I don't even eat them as a shovel for dips..I use the celery for that job
But I have to admit, these tasted pretty good.

I must have been considered a very wierd child, because my two favorite vegetables were hot buttered carrot coins, and cooked spinach, usually sautÚd with scrambled eggs.

JP,
thanks this looks good. I do eat carrots if they are right out of the ground and washed..It's just the cold storage ones that get me..I know my DH and the kids will love this salad and if my friend comes through with the promised carrots I will to.
Thanks again
kadesma

While I do like plain buttered carrots - especially TRUE baby carrots (with a bit of stem attached) & the round Parisian types - I also like older ones combined with turnips & bathed in a butter-sugar glaze, or combined with a well-seasoned white sauce.

I like carrots, kadesma. Always looking for a new & interesting way to prepare them. The orange marmalde sounds like the perfect touch. Must gave them a try - I'm thinking ahead to Thanksgiving sides in August. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

I'm jumping around here for a moment... but, I saved a recipe for an appy with ham and apricot baby food w tapioca, I was just looking at last night. I thought, what can I use in place of the apricot baby food & BINGO - your post (mentioning ham) & the orange marmalade nailed it for me. Yay! My recipe brain works? in mysterious ways sometimes. Perfect timing.

Hi Amy,
this did turn out nice and the kids loved it. Of course it was sweet I'm glad you like it as well. I think it's the small pieces of the orange and zest that makes it so nice..And that touch of ornage flavor is really good.I'd never thought of them for Thanksgiving, but, I think they will be one of the sides then...Thanks for letting me know your feelings about the recipe.

My favorite way to eat cooked carrots is to cook to just tender crisp stage. Make a sauce of butter, dijon mustard and honey. Pour over drained carrots and cook another minute or so. They are wonderful. Of course, only California carrots in our house - everything else seems to have a woody stem. Dh's favorite carrot dish is carrot and raisin salad - he will eat that for his salad and for dessert if there is some left.

One of the best ways to enjoy carrots I've found is Marcella Hazan's recipe for Braised Carrots with Parmesan Cheese from her 'Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking'. It takes a bit of time - the recipe seriously has you braising the carrots on the stove for 1 - 2 hrs. The results however.....yummmmm!
May try it again in the fall.
