Ingredients

  • 2 pounds carrots, trimmed and peeled

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon brandy

  • cup fresh orange juice

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch, or as needed

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley (Optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add carrots, cover, and steam until tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  3. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and stir in brown sugar until dissolved; add brandy, orange juice, and cornstarch. Stirring constantly, bring sauce to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until thick, about 1 minute. Pour sauce over carrots in baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling, about 30 minutes. Garnish with parsley.

Cook's Note:

To make ahead, pour sauce over carrots and let cool; refrigerate until about 1 hour before serving time. Let dish reach room temperature before baking for 30 minutes. You can warm in microwave oven for 5 minutes instead of baking.
