I'm not sure where my love of cooking comes from, but I speculate it's because I like to eat! This recipe from a treasured cookbook is a wonderfully different way to serve carrots. They do with most any meal and add nice color to the table.—Howard Koch, Lima, Ohio


  • 4 cups thinly sliced carrots
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch of white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed or 2 tablespoons minced fresh dill


  1. In a saucepan, combine carrots, water, butter, salt, sugar and pepper. Cover and simmer until carrots are crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Drain liquid into a small saucepan; set the carrots aside and keep warm. Bring liquid to a boil. In a small bowl, combine flour and cream until smooth; slowly add to liquid, stirring constantly. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour over the carrots; stir in dill. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
