1/2 stick unsalted butter, cut in half

1 lb. carrots, peeled and cut into 1-2 inch pieces

1/2 cup Jack Daniels or other bourbon

1/2 cup brown sugar

salt and pepper

Melt half of the butter in a large deep skillet over high heat.  Add  half of the carrots and cook and stir about 1 minute until they start browning.  Remove to a clean plate and repeat with remaining carrots.  Pour the whiskey into the butter in the pan and let the whiskey cook for about 3 minutes or until slightly reduced.  Lower heat to medium low and add remaining butter, stirring to melt.  Stir in brown sugar, then add all the carrots.  Cover and reduce heat to low.  Cook carrots covered for 5 minutes.  Uncover and season well with salt and pepper.  Let carrots cook uncovered for 5 more minutes.  Makes 3-4 servings

Note: If you don’t want to use whiskey, substitute orange juice~
