Sweet Carrots

by Laura

I must thank Amy at The Sister’s Dish for this simple but fabulous dish. If you have cooked carrots on your Thanksgiving menu, then you ought to try this recipe. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to have carrots on the side any other way again. This just adds to the flavor. This just makes your carrots even better.
I did use bouillon with water for the chicken broth and  I boiled my carrots for about 20 minutes. Of course, after I drained all the liquid off the carrots, I added a little butter and coat the carrots. Thanks again for sharing Amy!

what is “1 T”? 1 tablespoon or teaspoon? Thanks!

When used alone in a recipe, a capital “T” always means tablespoon. A lower case “t” always means teaspoon. I hope this helps!
