Sweet Mustard-Glazed Baby Carrots

  • Yield servings

Tasty, tiny version of their full-size carrot counterparts, tender baby carrots are peeled and ready to cook. A favorite with kids and grownups. Perfect bite-sized pieces every time.


1/2 cup water
10 ounces baby carrots
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons grated orange zest


  1. Bring water to a boil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the carrots, cover tightly, and cook 7 minutes or until the carrots are tender-crisp and the liquid has evaporated.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Stir in the mixture to the carrots. Cook 3 minutes, uncovered, until glazed, using two utensils to stir as you would a stir fry.
