Notes

I have a Pampered Chef french fry maker that makes nice, skinny carrot sticks. BUT most of the time, I buy pre-cut "shredded" carrots in the produce section of my grocery store. They're not really shredded (as you would with a box grater), but rather they are teeny tiny little carrot sticks that cook quickly in a stir fry. You can see them above in the photos.
