The Best Ways To Cook Carrots

Carrots are a truly versatile ingredient that deserves a place in every cook's kitchen. The possibilities are endless when it comes to using this vegetable and our carrot recipes are a great place to start. If you’re wondering what the best ways to cook carrots are, here are some of our suggestions:

  • Puree a handful of carrots to create a tasty and nutritious option for early baby-weaning food

How To Store Carrots

Raw, unpeeled carrots should be stored in the fridge, where they can last up to a month. For optimum freshness, simply trim the green ends off and place in the coolest part of your fridge, which is typically near the bottom. Wrap the carrots in a damp kitchen towel and store in an airtight container to help retain natural moisture.

After peeling and slicing carrots, store them in the fridge by washing them thoroughly, placing them in an airtight container, and covering them with water. If you don’t plan on using the carrots within a couple of days, it’s important to change out the water periodically (4-5 days) to prevent bacterial growth and to ensure optimal crispness.

Carrots go limp when they are exposed to air, so it's best to use them quickly. Keep them away from apples, potatoes and pears as these release ethylene gas which will create a bitter flavor.

How long does it take to boil carrots?

Boiling carrots typically takes 5-7 minutes, depending on the size and desired tenderness. Test with a fork or knife for easy piercing and slight firmness when done and adjust the cooking time based on your preference.

How to grow carrots?

This vegetable is actually very easy to grow, and you can then simply pick a bunch just before you plan to cook them. Try growing carrots in containers if you don't have a garden. Nothing beats the flavour of one freshly harvested and, best of all, they are naturally organic!

Can you freeze carrots?

Yes, carrots can be frozen. Frozen chunks – which retain their high vitamin A content – are handy for adding by the handful to healthy casseroles, soups, stir-fries and stews. If you want to freeze your own, choose the freshest ones you can find and blanch before cutting and storing in freezer bags.
