In a large saucepan, combine the carrots, half of the butter and the sugar. Pour in enough water just to cover the carrots and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the carrots are tender.
Drain the carrots and return to the pan, add the remainder of the butter, stir in the lemon zest, season well and toss. Serve immediately.
