If you have carrots that are wilting or ready to expire, I’ve got a super easy tip for you today on How to Freeze Carrots. Just like freezing ripe bananas, carrots can be grated, chopped and then frozen, to use in a recipe later. And, I’ve found it’s better to grate or chop carrots before freezing them.
Just follow these easy steps for freezing carrots. You will need a mini food processor and regular or baby carrots. I have a full sized food processor for bigger jobs like grinding oats and a mini food processor for small jobs, like grating carrots or chopping nuts.
Put the carrots in the mini food processor and pulse until they are grated evenly. Then place them in a bowl. A one (1) pound bag of baby carrots yields a little over 2 cups grated carrots. Oh, and if you love baby carrots in soups, just toss the bag in the freezer, then add them to your favorite soup recipes.
Then the next time you’re making a recipe using shredded or chopped carrots, just thaw them and use them like you would in your recipe. Grated or chopped frozen carrots also work great in soups and casseroles! I hope you enjoyed this easy tip on How to Freeze Carrots! I’ll be using these carrots in an upcoming Carrot Cake with Walnut Cream Cheese Frosting recipe! Make sure to subscribe to our free newsletter, you definitely won’t want to miss it!
