Orange and Honey-Glazed Carrots

2 lbs carrots, peeled (3 bunches)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter or 2 tablespoons unsalted margarine
2 tablespoons honey
kosher salt
1 teaspoon minced gingerroot
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Cut the carrots diagonally in 1″ thick slices. You should have about 5 cups of carrots.
Place 1/2 cup water, the butter or margarine, honey, 2 teaspoons salt, and the ginger in a large sauté pan and bring to a boil.
Add the carrots, cover, and simmer over medium-low heat for 5 minutes.
Remove the lid and continue to cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until all the water has evaporated.
Add the orange zest and orange juice to pan, tossing with carrots.
Simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes, until the carrots are al dente (tender, but still resistant when you bite into them)and the sauce glazes the carrots.
Add the pepper and another teaspoon of salt to taste.
*This dish reheats beautifully. Undercook the carrots a bit and reheat them before serving.
