Boil the carrots in the salty water for 5 min, drain and run under cold water
Whisk all the ingredients for the marinade and add carrots to it
Leave to marinate for a least 3 hours.
If you don't fancy ginger, don't use it, you can add cloves or cinnamon.
I always add a bit of vinegar to the marinade.
The longer carrots sit in marinade, the tastier they become, better to leave for 24 hours. If you don't have baby carrots, you can use normal ones, slicing them before.
