I've been making these carrots since I was a very young girl. They are delectable served as a side dish with any meal. It's my husband's favorite vegetable, and he's not a big fan of vegies. It is always on my Holiday table. It pares great with roasted turkey and a beef roast!
- Melt butter over low heat in a medium saucepan. Add carrots, onions, brown sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Cover pan tightly and cook over low heat for 15 - 25 minutes. Add basil, cover pan tightly again and continue cooking until onions and carrots are fork tender.
- Note that the carrots will secrete its own moisture, therefore adding liquid is not necessary. But if you're pan is not tightly sealed and the moisture escapes, add 1 tablespoon of water to replace the moisture lost. Enjoy!
