SLOW COOKER GLAZED CARROTS

When trying to pull a meal together with multiple dishes, it is a wonderful help to be able to pop something in the slow cooker and not have to think about it until it is done.
This was a yummy recipe, the carrots were cooked perfectly, and came out of the slow cooker with a delicious glaze, giving them a hint of sweetness.

SLOW COOKER GLAZED CARROTS


3/4 cup orange marmalade
3 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter, softened
3 to 4 cups sliced carrots
2 tablespoons honey
juice of half a lemon

In the cooking vessel of a 3 quart slow cooker, combine marmalade, water, ginger, cinnamon  and butter and mix well. Add carrots and honey and toss to coat, Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours. Drizzle with lemon juice just before serving.
Enjoy!
