  • 3 cups carrots washed, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces on the bias
  • 3 cups sweet potatoes washed, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 cups onion cut into chunks
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup wine I used a dry red, but sweet or dry, red or white will work
  • 1 cup broth chicken or vegetable
  • 1 cup dates pitted


  • Toss your carrots, sweet potatoes and onion chunks into your crock pot.
  • Add brown sugar, honey and cinnamon.
  • Then cover with orange juice, wine, and broth.
  • Cook on high for 6 hours or until vegetables and soft but not mushy and sauce is thick and coats the vegetables. Add the dates after 5 1/2 hours and continue cooking.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: if the vegetables are soft and the sauce is not thick yet, remove vegetables and continue to cook the sauce in the crock pot or a sauce pan until it is thick. Pour over vegetables.
