Maple Dill Carrots

I made these as a side dish one night for my Maple Sage Pork Tenderloins.  They went together very well!  The sweet buttery carrots are complimented so well by the salt, pepper and dill.  I think they would be a perfect accompaniment to just about any meat main course.


2 lb. bag baby carrots
4 Tbls. butter
3 Tbls. brown Sugar
1 tsp. dried dill (although you could use fresh.  In which case you’d increase the amount to about 1 ½ Tbls. Of fresh)
½ - ¾ tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper


Place carrots in a pot with a lid.  Pour in water about half to two-thirds the height of the carrots. Cover the pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat; lower heat and simmer until the carrots are tender. About 40 minutes.  Be sure you don’t run out of water in the pot. Drain the carrots.  

Stir in butter, brown sugar, dill, salt and pepper.  Serve immediately.
