2 lbs. carrots, sliced
12 oz. lemon-lime soda
1 Tbsp butter
¼ tsp fresh dill weed
salt and pepper to taste
Slice the carrots uniformly to promote even cooking. I prefer a mandolin, yes this is one of my favorite kitchen tools ♥. In a medium sauce pan, add the carrots and lemon-lime soda over medium-high heat cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and continue to eat for 10 minutes. Uncover the pan and continue to cook until the carrots are tender and the liquid is almost evaporated. Add the butter stir until melted and add seasons. Salt and pepper to taste.
