Weekly Recipe: Honey Mustard Roasted Carrots

This is easy to prepare, but it takes a long time to cook, so plan ahead. I can never make enough of these carrots for any occasion. They are much loved at every potluck.

1 bunch green onions (or 1 regular onion)
1/2 c. butter
5 lbs. carrots, sliced 1/2" thick
1 c. orange juice
1 c. water
3 1/2 T. mustard (try different flavors)
2 T. honey
s/p to taste

Saute onions about 3 minutes in butter. Put in 13x9 pan and add sliced carrots. Mix remaining ingredients well and pour over the carrots, stirring well. Place in preheated 500 deg. oven for about 2 hours or until tender, stirring every 10 minutes to distribute sauce evenly. Sauce will cook way down until it appears none is left. Enjoy!
