Easy Glazed Carrots

The classic technique for making glazed carrots involves adding just the right amount of water to a saucepan along with carrots, butter, and sugar and simmering for the exact length of time it takes for the liquid to reduce to a syrup and the carrots to become just tender. I usually overcook the carrots or add too little water, so I like this more forgiving technique. Cook the carrots in boiling water until crisp-tender and drain.

Bring a large saucepan of generously salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the carrots and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
