2. Blanch your carrots
Fill a pot with water and boil it over a high heat.
Then prepare a large bowl of ice water, which should be about the same size as your pan of boiling water, and fill with about one tray of ice.
Transfer your chopped carrots into the boiling water and leave for about two minutes to cook them briefly.
Then quickly transfer your carrots from the pan into the ice water, and let them sit there for they same time as they were give in the boiling water (about two minutes).
When they’ve finished in the ice water, drain the carrots.
