I had some carrots do something with before they would go bad. I did not have enought to can and did not want to dry theses so I went the freezing method.
It is better to have tender young carrots but I have before frozen carrots to use later for stews and rice dishes.
First trim, wash and peel. Small carrots can be left whole. The others should be cut into 1/4 inch slice or if you prefer diced.
Put the carrots in boiling water for 2-5 minutes or steam them for 4-5 minutes. Cool the carrots and then pack and freeze.
It is as simple as that and now you have carrots to use at a moments notice.
