Bourbon Carrots

3 cups water
1 1/2 pounds baby carrots
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons bourbon
Garnish: chopped fresh parsley

Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a 3-quart saucepan; add carrots, granulated sugar, and salt. Return to a boil, and cook 5 minutes or until carrots are tender.

Melt butter and brown sugar in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in carrots, and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes or until well coated. Add bourbon, and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 more minutes. Garnish, if desired.
