Notes

Note: Clarified butter is melted, and white milk solids are skimmed of the top, which allows the butter to be less heat sensitive and reduces the risk of burning.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup clarified butter
  • 2 Teaspoons Nielsen-Massey Pure Lemon Extract
  • 2 Teaspoons fresh dill, minced or 1 teaspoon dried organic dill
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 Pound carrots, sliced

Directions

Whisk the clarified butter, lemon extract, dill, salt, and white pepper in a large bowl. Add the carrots to the butter mixture and toss gently to coat. Place the carrots in a preheated large sauté pan. Sauté until tender-crisp. Serve warm.
 

Carrot Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Carrot Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
