Place carrots in pot. Add sugar and boil for 1 hour; allow to boil quickly, stirring occassionally, to avoid burning. Add juice of lemon and oranges, all grated rinds and ginger.

To test if ready, take a spoonful and place on a small plate, and allow to cool. If mixture holds firmly, it is ready to come off the stove. Wet a pastry board (wooden or plastic) slightly with cold water, and pour mixture onto it. Smooth down with a knife into a square slab, about 2 cm thick. Allow to set overnight. Cut diagonally into strips, to form diamond shapes. If when cutting, mixture is too soft, it can be re-boiled a second time.
