Maple Glazed Carrots from The Whole Foods Market Cookbook
Place the maple syrup, cinnamon stick, orange juice, and oranges in a sauce pot and bring to a simmer. Stir together the water and cornstarch until smooth. Stir the cornstarch slurry into the maple mixture, and continue to simmer over low heat for 30 to 45 minutes until thickened. Strain the glaze to remove the cinnamon stick and oranges. Cool the glaze.
Steam the carrots for 5 minutes, or boil in salted water for 6 minutes until firm-tender.
Combine the carrots, maple glaze, salt, pepper and parsley. Serve immediately. If you prefer serving the carrots steaming hot, put them in a hot saucepan for a few minutes to heat the glaze through.
