Just made these and they're now in the fridge to be reheated for Christmas dinner. Had a taste and they are lovely. I was a bit worried the orange would be overpowering but you can barely taste it.

I can't think of a better way to serve carrots, this recipe is wonderful.

Did it for Christmas '07, for the family, 14 people. It went down very well, in fact we had to repeat it last Christmas, too. It is a great recipe, which is even better for making the day before. We also do the beetroot with honey and the sprouts with pancetta as accompaniment for the Christmas meal. They have all become favourites with the family.

Anyone considered adding star anise to this? (nod to Tom Kerridge)

Try substituting the parsley with tarragon for a subtle hint of aniseed. I found the parsley in this dish just serves as greenery for presentation. With the tarragon you get the prettiness and a bit more flavour.
