Tips

Buying Carrots

  • The Produce Moms suggests carrots that have bright orange and smooth skin.
  • If you see black areas near the top, then this means that they are no longer fresh.
  • Medium-sized ones are suitable for juicing because they are not as firm as large and mature ones. 

Storing carrots

  • Do not wash carrots before storage.
  • It’s best to rinse them right before you cook or juice them. 
  • Put them in a container and store them in a cool and dark place to last for several months – this works especially well for ones bought in bulk. 
  • If refrigeration is preferred, then put the unpeeled and unwashed carrots in a jar or plastic container and submerge them in cold water.
  • Make it a habit to replace the water every five days. Refrigerating them can last up to a month in storage. 
  • If you wish to freeze this vegetable, then rinse and scrub the dirt away from the skin. Slice them and arrange them over a parchment-lined tray in the freezer.
  • Once frozen, individually remove them from the baking sheet and store them in a freezer bag or container. Freezing them can make them last up to several months.
