Even people who think they don't like carrots will eat and enjoy this dish. When I was working as housekeeper and cook for a lawyer years ago, he was so pleased with this recipe that he insisted I cook it whenever he entertained. He called it the "specialty of the house." -Ursula Ogden, Laurelville, Ohio


  • 2 cups julienned carrots

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
