    1. 1
      Choose green onions with large bulbs, remove the roots and cut off all green parts, leaving the bulbs whole.
    2. 2
      When chopped very finely the green stems can be used in place of the chives.
    3. 3
      Refresh the lettuce, take off all edible outer leaves and cut the heart into quarters.
    4. 4
      Butter a heavy pan thickly with 1 oz of butter and line with the large lettuce leaves.
    5. 5
      Add the heart, onions and salt.
    6. 6
      Peel the carrots, leaving them whole and place in one layer over the vegetables in the pan.
    7. 7
      Season lightly, sprinkle with sugar, add the rest of the butter cut into small pieces, and 3 tablespoons cold water.
    8. 8
      Cover closely and place the pan over a low heat for 3 to 4 minutes.
    9. 9
      As soon as the contents start to sing, reduce the heat to very low, shake the pan but do not uncover and cook for 20 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally.
    10. 10
      By this time the carrots should be tender but still faintly crisp.
    11. 11
      Replace the lid and cook for a further 3 to 5 minutes if necessary.
    12. 12
      Pour the contents of the pan into a heated serving dish, scatter with chopped parsley and chives.
    13. 13
      Serve immediately.

      I used the pkgs. of prepared carrots and had along with a French inspired recipe for steak and potatoes. These went great with the rest of the meal. I loved the simplicity of the recipe, especially since the taste was so darn good! Thanks Derf!

      Outstanding. Made with Chicken Jerusalem, and Lions Knees Potatoes and Blackberries With Fried Brie. I used baby carrots instead.
