Cracker Barrel Baby Carrots

We love Cracker Barrel. Unfortunately, we have to drive about 90 miles to get to one. My husband and my mother love their sweet baby carrots. After testing several different knockoff recipes, I finally found one that is virtually identical to those delectable carrots served at the restaurant.

Ingredients:

2 pounds fresh baby carrots
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbls butter
 
Directions:
Rinse 2 pounds of fresh baby carrots and place in large sauce pan. Add enough water to barely cover carrots.
Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer
Simmer for 30-45 minutes or until carrots are tender when pricked with a fork
Pour half the water off the carrots, add the butter, salt and brown sugar
Replace lid on pan and cook until completely tender but not mushy
More salt may be needed, depending on your personal taste preferences
