Buttery Cooked Carrots

These carrots are so sweet and tasty. I've never thought of boiling carrots to cook them for some reason, but it makes them tender so much faster than frying them in a pan.

Buttery Cooked Carrots
1 pound baby carrots    
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter     
1/4 tsp. salt

1. Cook carrots in a large pot of boiling water 8 minutes or until tender. Drain off most of the liquid, leaving bottom of pan covered with water. Set the carrots aside.
2. Stir butter, brown sugar, and salt into the water. Simmer and stir until the butter melts. Return carrots to the pot and toss to coat. Cover and let sit for a few minutes to allow flavors to mingle.
