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!
