Nice change from regular buttered carrots - I used a steam in bag of carrots to save on time and used dill weed instead of dill seed. Overall, very good.

My whole family enjoyed this recipe. I would suggest that one start checking the carrots at 20 minutes so there is just a slight bit of crunch to the carrots. Otherwise it is easy to overcook them.

We loved these! They are similar to "Buttery Cooked Carrots," also found on this site but with a twist (thanks to the dill). I used dillweed as it was all I had on hand and I had to uncover towards the end as the water didn't seem to be evaporating but the carrots were done. My daughter, who ate the most of all of us, asked me to make more when they were gone!! Will keep this easy sidedish around! Thanks Michele!

wow! this was really yummy. i never even thought to use dill with carrots, it was such a refreshing taste. i used 'fresh' dill weed(i had some frozen) instead of the dill seed. im not sure if that changes the taste, but it was excellent and i will prob. be making this on a regular basis. thank you!

My family loved this dish! I used baby carrots instead of cutting up big ones and it was excellent!

This was sooo good. I love carrots and I cook them a lot. I have never tried the dill, but I have used sweet basil a lot. I cook the carrots till tender, but not mushy, drain them, and then put about 2 tablespoons of butter and a pinch or two of dried sweet basil crumbled over the butter. That also is a unique taste. Now I have another way of cooking my carrots. Thank you for the recipe!

These carrots are divine! Special enough for company, easy enough for everyday. My 21 month old child couldn't get enough of them. Perfect!
