I use baby carrots when I'm pressed for time.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Add brown sugar, lemon juice, salt, and tarragon. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Turn off heat.

Perfect. The seasonngs are excelent. Not too sweet even w/the brown sugar. The tarragon really makes it special. But tarragon will do that to any dish. ;) Everybody loved this - even THE PICKY ONE whoo claims to not like carrots.
