Orange Glazed Carrot Ribbons


  • 2 pounds large long carrots, peeled
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • chopped chives


  1. Run vegetable peeler down length of carrots, shaving off long ribbons (you will need about 8 cups of ribbons). Cook in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 2 minutes. Drain and gently pat dry.
  2. Stir orange juice and sugar in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Boil until reduced to scant 1 cup, about 5 minutes. Add carrots and butter; simmer until carrots absorb most of orange syrup, about 4 minutes. Add honey and vinegar. Mix gently. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer carrots to serving bowl.
  3. Sprinkle with chives and serve.


  • Step one may be done 6 hours ahead. Cover and chill.

    Do you add the carrots to the already boiling water or heat the carrots up together with the water and then boil for 2 minutes?

      Add the carrots after you have already reduced the liquid. Then cook the carrots in that liquid for 4 minutes.
