Crushed Carrots

Type: Vegetables
Courses: Side dish
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

6 lbs 2724g / 96ozCarrots - peeled, trimmed, (medium)
  And cut into 1" dice
1 cup 198g / 7ozUnsalted butter - divided
1 1/2 tablespoons 22mlSugar
  Coarse salt - to taste
  Freshly-ground black pepper - to taste
3 tablespoons 45mlThinly-sliced flat-leaf parsley

Recipe Instructions

Place the carrots in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add enough water to come up to the top of the carrots without covering them. Add three-fourths cup of the butter along with the sugar and salt to taste and place over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer, then lower the heat and simmer for about 30 to 35 minutes or until very tender. Remove from the heat and drain well. (Carrots may be prepared up to this point a few hours before serving.)

When ready to serve, return the carrots to the saucepan. Add the remaining one-fourth cup butter and, using a fork, crush the butter into the carrots. Season with salt and pepper to taste and place over medium heat to warm through. Stir in the parsley and serve.
