Prepare your carrots into bite sized pieces and place them in a single layer in a saute pan. Add some brown sugar, butter, salt and pepper and enough water to come about a quarter of the way up the carrots.
Cover and bring to a boil. Simmer until about half cooked, remove the lid and continue to simmer until the water is gone and a syrup of the sugar and butter remains. Re-cover the pan and shake back and forth to coat the carrots with the glaze.
