These carrots make a great side dish. The kids love them too. I took this recipe from “Better Homes and Gardens – New Cookbook”
1 pound medium carrots, parsnips, or turnips, peeled
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1. Cut the carrots or parsnips in half, both crosswise and lengthwise. (Or, cut the turnips into bite-size pieces.)
2. In a medium saucepan cook carrots or parsnips, covered, in a small amount of boiling salted water for 8 to 10 minutes (10 to 12 minutes for turnips) or until crisp-tender. Drain; remove from pan.
3. In the same saucepan combine butter, brown sugar, and dash salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until combined. Add carrots, parsnips, or turnips. Cook, uncovered, about 2 minutes or until glazed, stirring frequently. Season to taste with black pepper.
