Zippy Peach-Glazed Carrots

This mouthwatering recipe can be made with red or cayenne pepper for a spicy kick, or you can omit the pepper for a non-spicy, but still zesty, side dish.

2 lbs carrots, washed, peeled & sliced
1/4 cup Mrs. Picky Fanicky's Zesty Peach Cocktail MmmMarmalade
3 Tbs butter
1 Tbs honey
1/8 tsp ground ginger
Pinch of cayenne or red pepper, optional
Salt to taste

Cook the carrots with a little water until just tender - you can boil, steam or microwave them, just be careful not to overcook. Drain and set aside. In a saucepan large enough to hold the carrots, combine the marmalade, butter, honey, ginger and pepper (if using), and cook over medium heat, stirring to melt the butter and combine everything together. Once the butter is melted, stir in the carrots and salt to taste (I find that a pinch is enough, or you can omit altogether). Cook over low heat while stirring gently, until the carrots are glazed (a few minutes should suffice).

Zestfully yours,
