An extrememly quick and easy way to fix carrots. The tartness of the lemon blends well with the sweetness of the carrots. I got this from A Recipe of The Day.

Theses carrots were absolutely delicious! So very simple to prepare with great results! I cooked as directed and when adding the lemon, salt & pepper, parsley and butter I added also 1 tsp of sugar. Excellent recipe! Thanks, Junebug!

I followed the recipe exactly, except for the lemon. I had none, so I used fresh lime juice. This recipe was wonderful. Our guests really enjoyed it.

I love this recipe. I made it for Thanksgiving and got many compliments. My kids loved these carrots and I think this recipe is destined to become a family favorite. I may try it in the future with dill instead of parsley just for a variation.
