Citrus Glazed Carrots And Parsnips

I made these the other night as a side dish to go with the baked ham and cheese sandwiches I made.  The sandwiches were just something quick and easy to throw together, so this side dish was definitely the best part of the meal. They were soo good and really pretty simple to make.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover. Simmer until liquid reduces to a syrup, about 10 minutes.  Stir often.  Season with more salt and black pepper if needed; sprinkle with green onions.
