Sweet, nutritious carrots are easy to grow in the home garden, and they freeze well either partially cooked (blanched) or fully cooked.
Carrots are not only delicious as a side dish on their own, but they are also an essential ingredient in a classic mirepoix, which is usually a combination of chopped celery, onion, and carrots. They can also be found in many dishes, from casseroles and soups to stews, sauces, and braised meats.
How to Prepare
Remove the tops from the carrots and peel. Slice or dice the carrots or leave baby carrots whole. Rinse in a colander under cold running water.
