Moreover, what is the best way to store carrots to keep them fresh longer?
Once the greens are trimmed off, all you have to do to keep the carrots crisp and fresh is put them in a container of water and store in the refrigerator! Whole carrots stay nice and crunchy in their cold water bath, and this is also a great way to store packaged baby carrots.
Subsequently, question is, should you wash carrots before storing? Washing is not required, and might add unnecessary moisture to the scene. Line a vegetable crisper with several layers of paper towel (kitchen paper) and place the carrots on top. Again, wash the carrots just before using them. Kept cool and dry like this, carrots should stay fresh for three months or longer.
People also ask, how do you preserve fresh carrots from the garden?
With a little prep, carrots will freeze surprisingly well. Simply trim, peel, and thoroughly wash. Slice or dice to the desired size, then blanch them for 3 minutes. Cool, then place the blanched carrots into baggies or freezer containers and use for your soups, casseroles, etc.
How do I freeze fresh carrots?
Cut others into thin slices, 1/4-inch cubes or lengthwise strips. Water blanch small whole carrots 5 minutes, diced or sliced 2 minutes and lengthwise strips 2 minutes. Cool promptly, drain and package, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Seal and freeze.
