"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 veggies. It is always on my Holiday table. It pares great with roasted turkey and a beef roast!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

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!

Such a great veggie to go with my turkey. I will be making it often since it was enjoyed by all of us here.

This has to be one of the best carrot recipes I've tried. Just enough sweet to them, only thing I did different was use a white sweet onion as that's all I had, and colored carrots - so good
