"Broccoli grows abundantly during the long summer days here in Alaska," Heidi Doudna explains from Fairbanks. "I like to harvest it and freeze it along with julienned carrots, so this is always ready to go. The two vegetables are wonderful together, and the judges at our state fair even awarded this dish a first prize."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 4, 2013

This is one of my go-to side dish recipes. Question: When do I add the butter? It is found in the ingredient list but the directions don't mention it. Anyone have any ideas?
