  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  2. Peel the carrots. Cut in half lengthwise, then cut into 1 inch pieces.
  3. Melt the margarine in a heavy saucepan on low heat.
  4. Add the carrots. Stir to coat them with the margarine.
  5. Add the water, salt, and pepper.
  6. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes until tender.
  7. Drain the water.
  8. Add the sugar.
  9. Cover the pan.
  10. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner for 1 minute.
