Ingredients

6 baby carrots, whole 180 g

1 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/2 lemon
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

  1. Put the carrots in a pot or a pan, just large enough to keep them in a single layer (or two layers, maximum).
  2. Add the butter, lemon juice, and water to a depth of about ½ cm. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer over low heat until the carrots are cooked al dente, about 10 min.
  3. Serve the carrots with the remaining cooking juices.

I had some larger carrots that had been in the crisper for a couple of weeks so used them in this recipe. Usually I add a bit of water and a good pinch of sugar to the water and microwave until tender. The subtle differences in making this recipe made the carrots taste like fresh out of the ground carrots. Wow! I'm making these for company tonight and can't wait for the comments on how good they are!
