Carrots are one of those vegetables that I prefer raw to cooked, but if we must have cooked carrots at Thanksgiving (and my Mother always insisted we must) here are five yummy looking recipes I found at allrecipes.com:

Over 14,000 readers have downloaded this recipe, and since you probably have all five ingredients for Orange Glazed Carrots in your cupboards right now, you might want to "audition" it before Thanksgiving.
