Candied Carrots

These carrots are delicious and almost impossible to screw up. My brother has been making these for years and I think he got the recipe from Martha Stewart but I'm not sure, and I don't have any measurements. Cut about a pound of carrots or so into 1/2 inch circles. Add carrots, a cup of water, butter (about 1-2 tablespoons), brown sugar (I use about 1/4 cup), a pinch of salt, a teaspoon of pepper and a 1/2 teaspoon or so of cinnamon and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until done. Add more salt, pepper or sugar (or any of the other ingredients) to taste. They are delicious, cheap and so easy! A friend of mine invited a new suitor over to her apartment for dinner and made these carrots. The suitor said they were the best vegetable he ever had. He then had to leave for his late night shrink appointment(true story). They never did go out again, but the facts remain, that they are still the best vegetables ever.
