    NOTE: Do not peel carrots

    Soak carrots in bowl with ice and water to cover for 30 minutes

    Transfer to colander and drain
  3. In a large heavy pan, heat water to boiling over medium high heat.

    Turn heat down to medium once water is boiling

    Add salt and whole carrots

    Cook until carrots are tender, but still crisp. (about 20 minutes)

    Transfer carrots back to colander, drain and set under cool running water until cool enough to handle.
  4. When carrots are cool, remove the skins by gently rubbing the carrots with your hands.(the skins will easily slip off)

    Discard the skins

    Cut the carrots diagonally into 1/4" thick slices
