Storage and Handling:

Keep carrots, un-peeled, in a loosely closed plastic bag in your refrigerator crisper drawer for up to two weeks.    Peeled carrots will dry out quickly.


*For bunched carrots, cut off the green tops leaving about an inch of stem on the carrots and then follow the storage directions above.


If you are fortunate enough to have a root cellar, they can be stored long-term when un-washed.


Culinary Uses:

Carrots can be used grated or sliced in salads and slaws, sautéed, braised, roasted, in soups and stews, for baking, or as a simple crudités with dip.
