Note: This works best with thicker rather than spindly carrots.
4 bunches baby carrots, trimmed and scrubbed or peeled
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons heavy cream
White pepper to taste
1 small bunch chives, chopped
1. Place the carrots in a skillet with the butter, sugar, salt and one-half cup water. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is evaporated.
