      Place the carrots, orange zest and juice, butter, sugar, and garlic in a small saucepan, and season with salt and pepper. Add enough cold water to barely cover the carrots.

      Bring to a boil, then cover and cook over a medium-high heat for 8–10 minutes, or until the carrots are just tender.
