Method: 

Trim carrot tops to 1 inch and peel or scrub carrots. Set aside.

Place pancetta in a large nonstick skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Add carrots, water, vinegar, butter, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer until carrots are almost tender, about 8 minutes.

Uncover, increase heat to medium high and simmer, tossing carrots often, until sauce is thickened, 3 to 5 minutes more. Add peas, toss gently to heat through, garnish with herbs and serve.
