Herbed Carrots

Frugal Family Recipes (featured column)
by Michelle Jones

Here's my recipe for 'good enough for company' carrots, without adding sugar. My family LOVES them (at least the ones who will eat cooked carrots), so I hope your family will too!

*  *  *


1 lb pkg. frozen baby carrots (store brand)
1 T. dried chives


In a medium pot bring 1 c. of water to a boil. Add frozen carrots, stirring gently to break apart if needed, and return to boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 12-13 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Drain carrots and return to stove, adding the remaining ingredients. If using stick butter, cut into several pieces so it will melt more easily.

Continue to cook carrots, covered or uncovered, for another 10-15 minutes, stirring gently from time to time. (Use cover if you prefer softer carrots.)

Place cooked carrots in a pretty serving dish and drizzle with any remaining butter sauce. Serve warm.
