Glazed Julienned Carrots

My S-I-L made these for us when we went over for a meal in their new apartment last week. I am not a huge carrot fan, but these are SO delicious. They remind me of my mom's carrot recipe. I love the sweetness that they have because I think my biggest complaint about carrots is that they are sometimes NOT sweet. The best part is that these are so easy, and use ingredients I always have on hand.

Ingredients: (Laura halved the recipe and it fed 4 of us comfortably)
2 lbs. carrots, julienned
1/3 cup butter, cubed
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp. salt

Directions: In a large skillet, combine all ingredients. Cover and cook over medium heat for 7-10 minutes or until carrots are crisp tender. Serve with a slotted spoon. Yields 8 servings.
