A touch of dried rosemary gives sweet glazed carrots some herbal depth.
In a large skillet, place carrots, butter, sugar, rosemary, and 1 1/4 cups water; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and cook until carrots are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. (If water evaporates before carrots are tender, add 1/4 cup more.)
Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until liquid is reduced to a glaze, 1 to 2 minutes more.
