Wonderful carrots

Here's a new way to eat carrots and get your kids to eat them too!

1 lb. carrots, either frozen or fresh
Boil in:
1 cup water
1 chicken boullion cube
1 T. sugar
Cook to desired tenderness.
Drain and toss in:
1 T. butter
1/4-1/2 t. dill weed

That sounds like a good one, Puff. I often braise vegies in chicken broth, but that toss in butter and dill weed would make a big difference.

Spot of ginger in there too wouldn't go amiss.

Buy the already peeled baby carrots (tend to be sweeter) and use orange juice for the cooking liquid---only time I ever saw my "Dennis the Menace" carrot-hating godchildren eat them. Little butter doesn't hurt but not necessary--

Yes, exactly -- to please the kiddies, this is the way to go.

We use butter and brown sugar. Delish!

With the addition of brown sugar (or Splenda and mollases), ginger, cloves, and cinnamon, carrots can be mashed and made to taste like pumpking fillin for a pie, or in tarts, or by adding milk and eggs, as a stand alone custard.

Personally, I like mine with butter, a touch of honey and ginger.

My kids didn't care for cooked carrots, no matter how I fixed them, but they would eat them raw.
I made some sweet ones like the recipes here, using baby carrots, for my grandson once. He liked them and even had a second helping. Later that night, he came down with a stomach bug, and the carrots really "got even" with him. He never liked them after that. I think we've all had something like that happen to us.
Mine was spaghetti. Took me years to realize I really liked it.

I'll sometimes mix boiled baby carrots, turnips, & cut parsnips with butter & a sprinkling of sugar, then stir until the sugar & butter melts/combines into a glaze. This is terrific with a plain roasted chicken & a side of a sharper greens mix - like a kale/turnip/collard/mustard mix.
