  • Cover the carrots with 2-inches of water.
  • Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Reduce heat and cook carrots until almost tender. For the carrots cut into larger pieces it takes around 6 minutes. Almost tender carrots are the ones you can pierce a fork through almost completely easy, but with some resistance in the center. You can poke the coked carrots easy as butter.
  • Add the peas into the saucepot with carrots and cook for 3 minutes.
