Jen's Glazed Carrots

Here is my Glazed Carrots recipe again. I needed to separate it out from a previous post, so it is easier to link back to in the future. I love these carrots!

Jen's Glazed Carrots

whole, peeled, fresh carrots: diced into coins (make sure they are all the same size)
pinch of salt
pinch of sugar
1 Tablespoon of butter
Steamer basket insert

Place an inch to an inch and a half of water into the bottom of a sauce pan. Place steamer basket into water-filled sauce pan. Place raw carrot coins into steamer basket insert with lid partially (cracked) open. Steam raw carrots until soft and tender, generally about 15-20 minutes (maybe a little longer, depending on if you have a lot of carrots to cook). Test for doneness by piercing carrot coins with a fork to see if they are soft/cooked through. Remove carrots to a bowl and toss with sugar, salt, and butter. Serve immediately.
