This simple side dish brings a special touch to almost any meal and the mint brings a refreshing zing to the sweetness of the carrots.

Melt half the butter in a medium wide based saucepan, add the carrots and make sure they form an even layer in the base of the saucepan.

Pour over enough stock to just cover the carrots, add two sprigs of mint bring to the boil and then simmer for 8-10 minutes or until almost all the liquid has evaporated and the carrots are tender.

Sprinkle with the sugar and add the rest of the butter, and turn over  the carrots a few times to coat in the sugary glaze and season with salt and pepper.

Remove the mint sprigs and discard.

Finely chop the leaves from the remaining mint sprigs and toss through just before serving.
