"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!"
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.

I am on a roll. And when I am on a role, I go all out. What, you ask? Pasta....
Well, as they say... good intentions are absolutely every...thing! Right? Well,...
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
Another ForeverMama winner! Made as posted, absolutely delicious. Have added it to my Family Favorites.
This is a great side dish for just about any meal. We enjoyed it very much.
Delish! I used whole baby carrots rather than sliced ones because that's what I had on hand. Once the liquid evaporates, the brown sugar caramelizes quickly. Mine looked a little burnt....but they weren't. Just a wonderful caramel glaze. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper, ForeverMama. Made for FYC tag.
Yum, Yum, and triple Yum!
We really did enjoy these carrots.
I used brown onions as I did not have red onions on hand. I also did not use the basil.... I wanted to...BUT... I dropped the bottle of my dried basil and it broke, I had a pinch of it in my fingers that was saved before it dropped, so that was all I could use!
Everything else was exactly as per the recipe.
The whole family really did love them, basil or no basil!
So easy to make with ingredients you usually have on hand or out of the hand in my case! lol
Delicious and simple way of making perfect carrots that will be seeing many a return to our kitchen table.
I cut the recipe down to 1/4 of a recipe, using 3 carrots and 1/2 onion. I did use regular sweet onions instead of red onions, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The flavor is fabulous. Definitely a winner!
