Honey & Cinnamon Glazed Carrots

Honey & Cinnamon Glazed Carrots
(This is a wonderful recipe that our close friend Nicki made for us.  It's a favorite of the kiddos!!!)

4 cups baby carrots (or sliced carrots - frozen work fine, too)
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons honey (I would use brown sugar if giving to children under 12 months old)
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Place all ingredients in a 4-quart slow cooker and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, or on high about 4 hours.
