How to store carrots

The best way to store carrots is in the refrigerator. Here are a few tips for storing carrots:

  1. Keep them dry: Remove any excess dirt or debris from the carrots and dry them thoroughly before storing.

  2. Keep them unwashed: Carrots can be stored unwashed, as the dirt on the skin can help to protect them and prolong their freshness.

  3. Use a plastic bag: Place the carrots in a plastic bag and seal it, leaving a small opening to allow for air circulation. This will help to keep the carrots fresh for a longer period of time.

  4. Keep them cool: Carrots should be stored in the refrigerator at a temperature between 32-40°F (0-4°C).

  5. Use them within a week: Carrots can last up to two weeks in the refrigerator, but it's best to use them within a week to ensure maximum freshness.

  6. If you're planning to store them for longer, you can peel them and store them in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

  7. Carrots can also be stored in a cold cellar, root cellar, or a garage that's cooler than your house, as long as it's below freezing.

It's important to note that carrots that are exposed to light and air will start to turn green and become bitter in taste. So make sure to keep them in a dark, cool place and don't wash them until you're ready to use them.
