  1. Check 4 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch sticks
  2. Check 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  3. Check 1 teaspoon sugar
  4. Check kosher salt


  1. Place the carrots in a large skillet. Dot with the butter and sprinkle with the sugar and ¼ teaspoon salt. Add enough cold water to come halfway up the sides of the carrots.
  2. Simmer, partially covered, until the carrots are tender and the liquid has reduced to a glaze, about 20 minutes. (If the carrots are done before this point, transfer them to a bowl, increase heat to high, and cook the liquid, uncovered, until reduced. Return the carrots to the pan and toss.)
