  • Squeeze the orange juice and pour it over the ingredients in the baking dish. Sprinkle the ground cinnamon and ground ginger in the baking dish. Mix all the ingredients. Dot the top of the baking dish with the butter. Add enough water so that the liquid reaches about half way up the dish. If you are adding walnuts or pecans, chop them into small pieces before mixing them into the casserole dish with the other ingredients.
  • Cover the baking dish and put into the oven. Cook about 45 minutes before uncovering the dish and continuing to cook the casserole for another 15 minutes or until the sweet potatoes and carrots are tender and brown. Don't overcook or it will become mushy.
  • Taste and adjust the flavors. Serve and enjoy!
