I made this the lazy way, in the microwave. Layered the baby carrots in dish, dotted with butter, sprinkled with brown sugar and nutmeg and nuked for 5 minutes. No salt. One wonderful dish (and one dish clean up). The nutmeg is perfect in this recipe. Thanks for posting gluestick.

A little too much nutmeg flavor imo. They weren't bad though.
