Back in early April, Jessa decided to grow carrots in her section of the garden.
This week, she was able to harvest a large bunch of them.
One little carrot in particular made us chuckle…
Looks a little like a leg model, eh?
While she originally planned to just feed them to the horse, we thought we’d try them out too. Now, this family doesn’t love carrots. But, here’s a recipe that I’ve found works for everyone’s tastebuds and keeps them from turning up their noses at this vegetable.
Sweet and Savory Carrots
1-2 c of carrots sliced thin
3 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
Place sliced carrots in pot and just barely cover them with water. Add butter, sugar, and salt to pot and bring to a boil. Cover the pan and reduce to a simmer. Cook the carrots about 7 or 8 minutes then remove the lid and raise the heat a little. Let the water reduce until it almost evaporates. This takes a few minutes and creates a delicious sauce for the carrots. Check your seasonings and adjust if necessary.
