Cut the carrots into even slices, then add them to a large pan. Add 2 cups of water. Place the pan over medium-high heat and allow to come to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and cover with a lid. Simmer the carrots for 8-10 minutes or until tender. Drain off any excess water.
Adjust the heat to medium. Add in the butter, honey, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Stir to coat the carrots. Cook until your sauce has thickened (2-3 minutes). Remove from heat. Serve! You can top your glazed carrots with chopped parsley, chives, red pepper flakes (for more heat), or sesame seeds if desired!
