Carrots You’ll Want to Eat

Back in early April, Jessa decided to grow carrots in her section of the garden.

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.
