Carrots

Storing whole, fresh carrots:

  • Wash the carrots, and trim off the green leaf tops, if present.
  • Store the carrots in a plastic bag. Poke a few small holes in the bag to let air in. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
  • Keep carrot sticks for snacks in your refrigerator for up to a week. To prevent carrots from drying out, store in water.

Blanch and freeze carrots for longer storage.

  1. Wash, trim, and cut large carrots.
  2. Place cut carrots in boiling water for 2 minutes or 5 minutes for small whole carrots.
  3. Drain carrots and place in ice water for 2 minutes.
  4. Drain and pack in labeled freezer bags or containers. Freeze carrots.
