  4. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Serve warm.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Comment

This was an interesting vegetable dish. We liked the slight sweet-tart flavor that the cranberries added and the savory touch that the butter provided. I think I will make this again with half the butter. I liked this as a different way to enjoy cooked carrots. Thanks!
