Freezing Carrots

This year in preparation for winter I started freezing lots of local organic vegetables. Each time I’d go to a farmers market I would buy a little extra and pack them away in the freezer. I just harvested my last bunch of carrots last week and wanted to do a “How to” blog in case anyone out there is wondering the correct way to freeze veggies.

Step 1: Peel and cut. For carrots I like to slice some up in medallions as well as julienne some.

Step 2: Boil in water for 2 minutes. This helps get rid of any bacteria and cleanse them in preparation for freezing.

Step 3: Cold water bath. Immediately after boiling drain carrots and run cold water over them to stop the cooking process. If you let them sit and keep cooking they will be soggy (like after blanching).
