500gcarrotspeeled and chopped into bite-size pieces
1orangezested and juiced
a small bunch of parsley (optional)
Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the carrots and fry on high heat for 4-5 minutes until starting to brown.
Add the brown sugar, orange zest and orange juice. Season with salt and pepper and stir. Reduce the heat and carry on cooking for another 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally. Your carrots should soften but still have a bit of crunch. If your carrot chunks are very large, you may need to cook for a bit longer.
Sprinkle some finely chopped parsley on top and serve!
These Glazed Carrots pair very well with Christmas Turkey and Ham.
