Orange Juice Glazed Carrots

i made these for Easter-a basic, quick, and easy side dish. i sort of adapted a recipe, but have also done it with the addition of some cayenne and cilantro (it was in Everyday Food somewhere...i can't find the recipe).

cooking the carrots (i used organic baby carrots) until tender.
freshly squeezed OJ. the Pellegrino bottle reminds me-does anyone have one of those soda makers? i really think i need to reconsider the amount of Pellegrino i buy, and am thinking about making the investment.
anyway, a little more than 1/4 cup of orange juice, four tablespoons light brown sugar (not packed-the recipe called for four to one pound of carrots. i did more than a pound and thought they tasted fine without adding more sugar).
almost 2 Tbs of butter (unsalted).
then just stir it all together in the pan until the orange juice reduces a bit, and the sugar dissolves. oh, and i added some salt....
