2 pounds baby carrots, as uniform as possible

1 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

¼-½ teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 / 3 cup shelled natural pistachios, coarsely chopped

1. Peel the carrots and cut in half. Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the carrots and time five to seven minutes, until almost tender. Drain and plunge into ice water until chilled. Drain and pat dry. Store in plastic bags in refrigeration.

2. In a large pan melt the butter over medium heat. Add the sherry and bring to a boil; boil one minute.
