Place the raisins in a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes and then drain, discard the water.
Fit a food processor with the grating blade. Cut the carrots in half and place in the feed tube so they are lying on their sides. Process in batches.
Transfer the grated carrots and raisins to a large mixing bowl.
In a small bowl, stir the dill, apple concentrate and salt into the vinegar before adding the oil.
Pour the dressing over the carrots and toss everything together.
Add the vegan mayonnaise if you are serving an all Vata group. Otherwise, serve the vegan mayonnaise on the side as a garnish for Vata people.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Ready to serve. Can be chilled if desired.
** You don't have to peel the carrots but the dish will be sweeter and less bitter if you do.
