Here’s how you do it

  1. Wash the carrots well and trim the tops. cut larger carrots in half down the length so they're more or less even in size.
  2. Add the butter, water, a sprig of lemon balm, lemon juice, sugar and the carrots to a medium pan with a lid.
  3. Bring to the boil then simmer for 7 minutes with the lid on.
  4. Remove the lid and continue to simmer, tossing the carrots in the buttery water as they continue to cook and the liquid reduces down to create a glaze.
  5. Transfer to a serving bowl, discarding the cooked lemon balm from the pan, and top with a few sprigs of fresh lemon balm.
