Bring a 2-quart pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the carrots and bring the water back to a boil.

Reduce the heat to medium and let the carrots cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

While the carrots are cooking, whisk together the water, tamari, red wine vinegar, garlic, granulated onion, mustard powder, coriander, mace, smoked paprika, and black pepper in a baking dish.

Drain the carrots and rinse them under cool water to stop the cooking.
