I probably will add more salt the next time (didn't put lots in the water to cook them), but all in all, very good.

This recipe was made on 3/5/10 for my son's birthday and the " Special Meals 2010 " event in the Cooking Photos Forum. After cooking the carrots, all the water was drained then the butter and brown sugar was added. We all thought that the taste was just o.k.. Thank you for taking the time to post, and " Keep Smiling :) "
