3Cover saucepan and gently simmer carrots until they are just tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
4Drain carrots in a colander. Return carrots to saucepan.
5Add butter, sugar, salt and spices to carrots in saucepan.
6Set saucepan over medium heat and cook mixture, stirring constantly, until butter and sugar are melted and form a glaze on carrots, about 4 minutes. Serve immediately.
