Carrots with Lemon Dill Butter

Carrots

The Carrots with Lemon Dill Butter recipe below allows home cooks to elevate simple carrots with nothing more than cupboard staples. Nielsen-Massey Pure Lemon Extract is added to clarified butter, salt, white pepper, and fresh or dried dill for a light splash of citrus that will stand out and enliven the whole meal.

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.
