Ingredients

5 Large (7-1/4" to 8-/1/2" long) Carrots
1 Cup Water
1 1/2 Tsp Salt
1 1/2 Tsp Pepper

Directions

Bring water to a boil.

You only need about an inch or two of water, enough to create steam.

Place the carrots in a steaming basket, and place the basket over the water.

The carrots shouldn't be immersed in the water.

You want the steam to cook them, not the water.

Steam the carrots until done from 5 to 30 minutes depending on the carrot size.

You can cover them, but leave a little vent for some steam to escape to avoid it building up too much.

Check the water level every so often.

Add more if it gets too low.

You can test the carrots for doneness by sticking a fork in them.

It should slide in easily enough or just taste a piece.
