Brown Sugar-Glazed Carrots

Prep: 10 min Cook: 20 min

2 lbs. carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices (12 to 14 medium)
1/2 teaspoon salt, if desired
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Heat 1 inch water to boiling in 3-quart saucepan. Add carrots
and, if desired, 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and heat to boiling;
reduce heat. Simmer covered 12 to 15 minutes or until carrots
are tender.

2. While carrots are cooking, heat brown sugar, butter, orange
peel and 1/2 teaspoon salt in 10- or 12-inch skillet over medium
heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved and mixture
is bubbly. Be careful not to overcook or the mixture will taste
scorched. Remove from heat.

3. Drain carrots. Stir carrots into brown sugar mixture. Cook
over low heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and gently,
until carrots are glazed and hot.
