1. Scrape the carrots, wash thoroughly, and wipe with a clean cloth. Cut into rounds or 1" length pieces. Prick the pieces with a sharp needle.
2. Put the pieces into a ceramic bowl, sprinkle sugar and leave overnight.
3. Next day, add the citric acid and bring to a boil on very, very low heat until the carrots turn soft and the syrup forms a one-thread consistency.
4. Remove from fire, add the essence, cool, pour into sterilised jars, and seal.
