The original recipe, which my mother acquired over 45 years ago, called for two bunches of small carrots so I had to guess how much to use. I eventually got the recipe amounts worked out to my liking.

Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Herbed Carrots

2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon sugar
2 cups sliced fresh carrots
3 lettuce leaves
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
2 tablespoons Evaporated milk

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Recipe Directions for Sweet Herbed Carrots

  1. In a large skillet, cook and stir the butter and sugar over medium heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Stir in carrots; cover with lettuce leaves. Sprinkle with water. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until carrots are crisp-tender.

  2. Discard lettuce. Stir in the parsley, cream, tarragon, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Serve with a slotted spoon.
