Carrots were my favorite vegetable when I was very young. I used to like them mashed with butter. Here's another way that kids enjoy and can participate in making.

I used six huge carrots and cut them in one inch slices and doubled the ingredients!. They were very good. I sampled before I put in the frig to cool. I will serve them with salmon patties and buttered noodles. I used the stovetop on low heat and all the sauce went into the carrots. Yummm.

The simplicity of this recipe makes it wonderful. Nice, sweet carrots without too much butter. I especially like that it's a one-pot-no-drain recipe. I used petite baby carrots for this (my kids' favorite). Thanx for posting this; I'll make our carrots like this often.
