Orange marmalade and Dijon-style mustard add a distinctive, sweet and tangy flavor to rounds of steamed fresh carrots.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard

Instructions

  • Peel and trim the carrots. Slice on the bias into 1/4-inch thick coins and place them in a large skillet.
  • Sprinkle with the salt and add water until barely covered. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium.
  • Cover and cook until the carrots are tender but still hold their shape, 8 to 12 minutes (do not overcook). Drain well and set aside.
  • Add the butter and marmalade to the pan and cook over medium heat until liquified.
  • Stir in the mustard and add the carrots back to the pan. Continue cooking, gently turning the carrots with a spatula, until they are well coated with the glaze.
  • Transfer to a covered casserole and keep warm until ready to serve.
