STORAGE TIP
Carrots can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month if stored properly. Cut off carrot greens, place carrots in a containers with lid and cover completely in water. Keep container in the refrigerator, changing the water every 4-5 days.

Freezing Tips: Blanching Method – Remove green stems and wash carrots thoroughly. Cut carrots to your preferred size. Fill a large stock pot about 2/3 full of water and bring to boil. Immediately scoop out the carrots and cool them instantly in an ice water bath. Drain carrots well and place meal-sized portions in freezer bags.

Farmers Wife Way Carrots are usually blanched and then frozen to preserve their flavor, nutrients and texture. However, they can be frozen without blanching. (I personally do not taste a difference in quality when I don’t blanch, however they don’t last super long in our freezer either.)
