Freezing Carrots

We absolutely love our carrots around this house. I also love the fact that I don't always have to can them, I still do just in case something was to happen. One year we had the power go out for 7 DAYS! We were really roughing it. Heating bath water in our fireplace, mind you we went out and collected snow for our bath water, lol. Oh that was a fun week. So anyways here is a pretty quick and easy way to freeze your carrots, and they also hold there nutritional value alot better.

Peeled, ends cut and ready to get blanched.

Mr. Jumpsalot's little snacks :) nothing goes to waste here.

Blanched then put in ice cold water, to stop the process.

I wanted a couple different styles, this is for roast nights.

Finished product, yummy!

Wash, trim, peel, and rinse again. Leave tiny ones whole; slice or dice the remainder.


Blanch tiny whole carrots for 5 minutes and cut up carrots for 2 minutes; cool quickly by plunging into ice water; drain. Pack tightly into containers, leaving a 1/2 inch head space, or placing in freezer bags. I would say they should be good for up to a year. Unless you notice that they look freezer burned.
