Storing carrots

Store carrots in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. They will keep at least 2 weeks. 

Best uses for carrots… so many!

Soups, raw in veggie trays, stir fry, roasted, braised or steamed, grilled, cake/bread/muffins/pancakes, salad and slaws, juiced, casserole, mashed, fritters, carrot fries, carrot chips, pickled or fermented, hummus, baby food puree, and more!

How to freeze carrots

To freeze carrots, you’ll need to blanch them first.

Wash carrots in cold water and trim the tops and bottoms. You do not need to peel if you don’t want to. Dice into smaller pieces.

Blanch in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Quickly remove the carrots and dunk them into a bowl of ice water for 2 minutes. Drain well and place in a freezer bag to freeze. Don’t forget to label and date the bag!
