Recipe: Apricot-Glazed Carrots

This recipe for Apricot-Glazed Carrots is just a quick little tid-bit… a nice touch to carrots… a good addition to any meal. I think it's important to make side dishes a bit special especially when the main dish is a bit bland.... well... even if it's not... this tastes great!

Hope you try this quick and easy way to spruce up a vegetable.


I know 5 cups is a lot of carrots... you can cut this recipe back... if cutting in half...I would reduce the amount of water to ½ cup... reduce the salt to a pinch or taste... and reduce the apricot preserves to 3 tablespoons.
