How do you cut carrots into sticks?

Cut crosswise into the lengths you want, usually 3 inches is a good standard. Then cut into sticks the thickness you like. Larger sticks are good for vegetable platters, and thin ones are good for salads or pickling. To make diced carrots, stack up the slices and cut across into however large a dice you would like.

Beside above, how do you cut carrots for roasting? Slice the carrots diagonally in 1 1/2-inch-thick slices. (The carrots will shrink while cooking so make the slices big.) Toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Transfer to a sheet pan in 1 layer and roast in the oven for 20 minutes, until browned and tender.

Do you have to peel carrots?

When it comes down to it, you don't ever really have to peel carrots. As long as you wash and scrub them well to remove dirt and any debris, unpeeled carrots are perfectly safe (and delicious) to eat. Some people don't like the taste of carrot skin and say it has an unpleasant, bitter taste.
