Freezing Carrots

Another post on putting food away for the winter. Why? It’s healthier…when you freeze your own food you decide what is quality and you know how it’s actually been handled.

Today I’m freezing carrots, organic carrots to be exact. These are the regular full size garden carrots not the baby ones. Here is what I have found to be the best method.

Peel the carrots and wash them. Slice the carrots and blanch them in boiling water for two to three minutes. Next, scoop them out and place them in ice water for about five minutes. After that place them in a strainer for a few minutes to drain off as much water as possible. Place them in freezer bags and put in the freezer. They keep pretty well for up to a year.
