|Apple juice||4 Teaspoon|
|Brown sugar||1 Tablespoon|
|Ground nutmeg||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
Cut the carrots into 2"-long pieces.
Then cut each piece lengthwise into quarters.
In a large saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, bring about 1" of water to a boil.
Place the carrots in a steamer basket and set the basket in the saucepan, making sure the basket sits the water.
Cover the saucepan and steam for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender.
Meanwhile, in a 1-cup microwave-safe measuring cup or custard cup, stir together the apple juice, brown sugar and butter.
Cook in a microwave oven on high power (100%) about 25 seconds or just until the brown sugar and butter are melted.
To serve, transfer the carrots to a serving bowl.
Drizzle with the apple juice mixture and toss until coated.
If desired, sprinkle with the nutmeg and toss again.
