Lemon glazed carrots

This is a lovely, easy way to brighten up winter carrots, and a recipe I use a lot. Steam or boil your carrots as you usually do, then drain them in a colander. Add a large knob of butter to the hot pan and swirl it around to start melting, then add the juice of half a lemon and a generous handful of finely chopped parsley. Quickly return the carrots to the pan, put on the lid and shake well to coat, stirring with a spoon if needed.

That looks delicious, have you ever tried rosemary with carrots, it is good, too.
I have parsley and parsnip seeds to plant. I have never tried parsnips, but, have heard it is great in quick breads and muffins.
I always enjoy your blog.
