If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the pictures of my carrot harvest already! We had a bumper harvest of carrots this year – the best harvest I’ve ever had. I didn’t have a clear cut plan of what to do with all of those carrots, so I had to take to the internet. Here are a number of ways I’ve found to preserve a bumper carrot harvest!
How to Preserve a Bumper Crop of Carrots
1. Freeze –
Freezing carrots is really easy and is the first thing I do. To freeze, simply slice the carrots, then blanch them for 1-2 minutes, shock with cold water, pack and freeze. Easy peasy. Especially since I used my 11 cup Cuisinart Food Processor to do the slicing. If you’d like a more in-depth tutorial, PickYourOwn.org has one I recommend. I froze mine in 2 cup portions and they’ll be great for winter soups or quick side dishes! They’re so sweet and tasty!
