ORANGE SPICED CARROTS
1 pound Raw carrots
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup Orange juice
1 Tablespoon Margarine
1/2 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon Ground nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons Grated, fresh orange rind
Wash carrots and pare (peel) them with a vegetables peeler; remove ends. Cut carrots crosswise into 1/4-inch rounds.
In a saucepan (kettle) put water, orange juice, and margarine; add carrots. Cover tightly and simmer over low heat 25 minutes or until carrots are crisp-tender.
Check to make sure that carrots don't burn because most of the liquid will be absorbed; add a few tablespoons of water if necessary.
Sprinkle carrots with vanilla, nutmeg, and orange rind; mix well.
