Tips for Storing Carrots

Unlike a lot of vegetables, where you want to eat them as fresh as possible, storing carrots is actually a good thing to do. Carrots can actually improve in quality with cold storage. As time goes by, more starch is converted into sugar and the carrots become sweeter.

Wash the carrot roots and remove the tops before storing in the refrigerator in a perforated plastic bag (optional).

If your refrigerator space is limited, you can store carrots in a cool location.  Store them in a bucket filled with damp sand.

Carrots can be stored for 7 to 9 months (or you could make carrot cake).
