    msjill111's Note:

    My younger brother, David, attended cooking school years ago and this was one of the recipes he taught the whole family to make. He has since passed, but this recipe will live on forever. It's very sweet and even if you don't like carrots, which I don't, you will love this recipe.

      During my childhood, my mom never made carrots as a vegetable because she did not like carrots by themselves as a side dish. She put carrots in soups and stews and served them raw with cheese and crackers for my lunch. I am positive that she will love this recipe when she tastes it because these carrots are absolutely delicious. Using a sweet onion is the secret to the scrumptiousness of this recipe. My Vidalia onion caramelized in the butter creating a naturally sweet and thick syrup. The carrots were so sweet that it is hard to believe that there was no honey, sugar, or maple syrup added. Thank you, msjill111, for incredible Carrots and Onions!

      First, please don't let the amount of butter scare you! You don't have to eat it all, any more than you have to drink all the water when you boil or steam vegetables. As another reviewer has pointed out, the butter is used as a medium in which to cook the veggies. You don't have to serve them with all--or any--of the butter. Use as much butter for serving as you choose. YOU control the calories here. I think this is one of the best carrot recipes I have ever tried. It really showcases the carrots' intense natural sweetness, without artificial sugary adjuncts. Thank you so much for posting. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.

      These were good and easy to make. I used margarine instead of butter and only used a cup of that. I used a pound of frozen carrots. I also had precut frozen onions, so I used a cup of those. This was something different but I couldn't believe how high in calories they were. Tastey, easy side dish to make.
