Sweet baby carrots slowly simmered together with delicate spring onions are well worth the wait for the first days of summer. This recipe is simple however it does require patience.

1 cup water

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

Prep: In a medium sauce pan bring water to a boil. Add carrots and onions and simmer on low heat .
