Glazed Carrots with Dill

When I think back to family gatherings spent at my grandmother’s house, there were a lot of people sitting around the dinner table. Like a number of other families around the world, there were so many of us that we had a second table set up in the kitchen. And as we grew older, the “kids’ table” lost it’s moniker, but we continued to add seats when the need arose. And now that I’m following in my grandmother’s footsteps by cooking in her former kitchen, I love recreating some of her favorite recipes.

Mango, my grandmother, was a quiet, but effective cook. The amazing smells that filled the house were the only proof we had that she was a busy bee in the kitchen. She took time and great care with each dish so that we all ended up will full bellies and warm hearts. But, at 91 years old, she rarely makes it into the kitchen anymore to cook for our family. So, in honor of her, I’ve begun to take over a few of the larger meals she once prepared. One recipe that she served often at family dinners was Glazed Carrots with Dill. It’s not a very involved recipe, but when prepared with fresh ingredients, it always tastes gourmet. And since it’s a tried-and-true favorite of Mango’s, I think of her each and every time I make them.
