Some carrots

A peeler

A sharp knife

How to cook

1

Peel

Peel your carrots. If you don't have a Y-Peeler, you should definitely get one. They're about 5 buck, and they make peeling much more enjoyable than the classic straight peeler.

2

Remove ends

Now that you don't need them for grip, you can slice off the tips.

3

Cut lengthwise to desired width

Now slice the carrots down their length to the desired width of your final dice.

4

Cut into sticks

Now slice those slices at the opposite angle. It should be easier now because there is a flat spot on your carrots to keep them from shifting.

5

Dice

Group the planks and slice. The result will be something like a rough cube.
