Crockpot Orange, Honey and Herb Glazed Carrots are a stunning side dish that will be a delicious addition to your holiday or Sunday dinner table. Carrots are slow cooked in butter, orange honey and herbs and finished with crunchy, toasted pecans.
One of my favorite items on a holiday table is a bowl of glistening glazed carrots, and this dish is just that. Not only is this dish really easy to make, it is so foolproof that will become your new favorite side dish. Orange and honey pair so deliciously with carrots along with seasonal sage and rosemary, you have a sweet and herby vegetable that is so befitting of a holiday table.
Not just a holiday dish, I make this all the time for weekend Sunday dinner. Is there anything more appetizing than a delicious platter of shiny, glazed carrots?
Since the oven is precious real estate when holiday cooking is happening, take some help from my crockpot to make these amazing crockpot orange, honey and herb glazed carrots. This dish cooks on the counter while your holiday roast is roasting. Enlist the help of your relative who doesn’t cook, they could not mess this up.
For this particular recipe, I used carrots with the green tops. I buy these whenever my grocery store has them because they are their flavor is much sweeter. Regular carrots can be used, or for ease of preparation,you could also use a bag of baby carrots that are already peeled.
