How to buy carrots

When buying carrots at the grocery store or farmer market, look for carrots that are uniform in color and whose skin is smooth with no cracks. The carrots may be slightly green at the crown but a dark coloring tells that the carrots are getting old. When selecting carrots that have the stems attached, check for those that have fresh-looking greens. Discard carrots that have started to sprout, that have soft spots, and any that have become limp.

How and how long to store carrots

If stored properly, you can keep carrots in the refrigerator for up to a month. Wrap the carrots in a paper towel and then place them in a bag in the refrigerator to avoid condensation from forming. Be careful because excess moisture will cause carrots to rot. Carrots can also be peeled, cut up, blanched, and then frozen in Ziploc bag. You can preserve them for approximately a year using this method.

How to Prepare Carrots for Cooking

Carrots are available all year long at your grocery store. The first step in learning how to cook carrots in the oven, stovetop, or slow cooker is knowing how to prep them. For four servings of carrots, you can count on one pound (450g) of fresh carrots.

  • Make sure to wash carrots thoroughly under cool running water. Use a soft brush to remove any dirt that stuck on the root.
  • When ready to cook, peel or scrub the carrots and trim the stem and root end. Some recipes call for cooking carrots whole, you can keep some of the stems for a pretty presentation. In this case, cut stems to 1 inch and wash thoroughly.
  • If you’re wondering how to cook carrots fast, start with packaged peeled baby-cut carrots. There’s no prep needed!
