Wondering if you can freeze carrots? Preserving this crunchy vegetable in the freezer works: here’s how to do it!


  • Carrots


  1. Slice the carrots into rounds or dice them.
  2. Blanch the carrots: Prepare a large pot of boiling water. Add the carrots and boil for 2 minutes, until just tender.
  3. Flash freeze: Rinse the carrots under cold water until cool to the touch. Pat the carrots dry. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, then place the carrots in a single layer. Flash freeze for 1 hour.
  4. Place the carrots in an airtight container or freezer-safe plastic bag. If using a bag, use a straw to suck any remaining air out of the bag and seal it. 
  5. Mark the “Use by” date. Use a permanent marker to label with a “use by” date that is 3 months in the future. 
  6. Freeze. Place the container or bag in the freezer and freeze for up to 3 to 6 months. For best results, use in 3 months. You can use frozen carrots directly in cooked dishes; no need to thaw (do not use raw).
