Delicious and so simple! I put everything in the slow cooker on "low" and let it go all day for the evening meal. Everyone loved them and I did, too. Thanks!
Not too bad. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it was really too sweet for my taste, almost like candy. Perhaps it should be called "Candied Carrots" instead? I did use fresh squeezed orange juice so the only added sugar was natural. If I did make it again I would cut the sugar back a bit.
Additionally I found that the carrots really need to cook a bit longer on the stove top as they only soften a touch in the oven for stated 20 minute bake. In fact I cooked them an additional 10 minutes in the oven [30 minutes total, covered with foil to create a steam like bath] and they were barely softer as when I removed them from the stove top.
Overall a nice "starter" recipe and with a little tweaking you can make it your own - unless you like super sweet, extra firm glazed carrots then this is definitely your recipe. Thanks Katie H.
Super easy crock pot recipe. Doubled recipe and cooked it on high for 4 or 5 hours. Everyone lived it!
The glaze was very sweet but it was nice added touch that complimented the carrots. The cooking time was off... the carrots were undercooked. Next time I make this I will just cook the carrots on the stove top until they are completely tender and then just add the glaze to it.
Loved the flavors of the orange and cinnamon, it was a big hit at Christmas dinner!!
Next time I would cut back on the sugar, it was WAY too sweet.
I've made this recipe twice now and we really enjoy it. A nice twist on a simple vegetable. Left overs are even better the next day. They seem to soak up the flavors. I used a bag of mini carrots and this couldn't have been easier. Will make it many more times. And I always have those ingredients on hand. Thanks Katie.
This was the perfect addition to our table this Thanksgiving. It was enjoyed by all. Thank you!
