    Axe's Note:

    This makes a perfect side dish for a Turkey dinner. It's the ONLY way I can get my in-laws to eat carrots. I prefer to steam the carrots, but you can boil them if you don't have a steamer. You can also slice regular carrots if you don't have baby carrots. If you don't have a lemon zester tool, you can use the fine side of a grater.

      Lightly sweetened carrots is one of DH's favorite dishes. This was super quick since the carrots were microwaved. The butter, brown sugar and lemon peel was added to the cooked carrots and allowed to stand until melted. Everything was transferred to a saucepan and cooked just until lightly glazed. I did reduce the brown sugar by half but that is my personal preference. Made for *PAC Spring 2009*

      I love carrots, but am sure I don't eat enough of them :) This recipe may just be the solution. I prepared this recipe as directed, boiling baby carrots. It only took about 10-12 minutes to boil them. I just love the fresh sunshine flavor the lemon zest adds to the carrots. I may even add a bit more next time. This is so easy and definitely a keeper, Thanks Axe!

      We loved this dish. I just discovered my steamer, and these were wonderful to start with. Loved the contrast of sugar to lemon.( I used fresh zest) Went great with your Gala Meatloaf (Crock Pot). Will be making again.
