Welcome to #CranberryWeek! All week long I will be sharing my newest recipes for using that delicious autumn berry along with a group of blogging friends. I am sure we will have it  covered from A-Z!

I will  be posting two recipes today, this recipe of the day for a simple cranberry glazed carrots, and also today my recipe for Bacon and Potato Salad with Sweet Vidalia Dressing, so   make sure  you get to see both.

This carrot recipe is a version  of another of my favorite side dish recipes, which is  Glazed Baby Carrots Dijon. In some ways they are very much alike, but also a bit different.

But each of them has a glaze that actually clings- and I am a stickler on this point. If the sauce does not  cling, it is not a glaze.

For example,  if in  winter, the weatherman said ice would glaze your sidewalks, that is a bit different from just wet rain that runs right off, correct?

And I despise a runny glaze. Probably more than Ruby Thewes despises a flogging rooster in the movie Cold Mountain, but pretty  close.

I have a lot in common with that character actually, but if you have met me, you already know this.

So now that my food policing  is over,  you can go  down and read the recipe and see how easy it is. It’s not hard to make- you just   need to have the correct amount of butter and sugar in there and presto- perfect glaze. Now you can make a perfect glazed carrot, every  single time. Enjoy.
