Lemon Glazed Carrots

READY IN: 53mins
Recipe by Axe1678

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*
