Storage Tips
Before storing carrots, remove their green tops, rinse, drain, and put the carrots in plastic bags and store them in the coldest part of the refrigerator with the highest humidity. They'll last several months this way. To keep the carrots crisp and colorful add a little bit of water in the bottom of the plastic storage bag; this will keep the carrots hydrated. Carrots should be stored away from fruits such as apples and pears, which release the ethylene gas that cause carrots to become bitter. Firm up limp carrots by cutting off one of the ends and sticking the carrots in ice water, cut side down. Carrot's nutritional values increase when they are cooked. Raw carrots have a tough cellular wall that our bodies are not able to breakdown very easily. Therefore, cooking carrots until they become slightly tender actually makes their nutrients, including beta-carotene, more accessible to our bodies. Cooking carrots properly will also bring out their natural sweetness.
