Maple-Tangerine Carrot Coins

In the weeks leading up to Maple Weekend here in NH I start pulling recipes into my On Deck category on MasterCook.   This was one of the first I grabbed, mainly because I'd been seeing tangerines a lot at the grocery store and they looked so good.   Today I was serving panko and parm breaded chicken and Uncle Ben's Roasted Chicken (w/carrots) rice, and this was a great veggie side.  

I only had baby carrots on hand, so I pulled aside the largest ones for another use and kept all the similar ones for this.   Mine took slightly longer to reduce down at the end, but it was worth the wait!    I love the fresh cracked black pepper and the sweetness of the maple.   This would also be excellent with orange juice too.    I managed to miss seeing the cinnamon, and I don't know that I would add when I make them again- loved it exactly as it is.    :)
