Freezing Carrots

I had a pot roast in the freezer then a few weeks ago threw a couple bags of "baby carrots" in so I'd be ready.

Thawed everything in the fridge for a couple days and noticed the bag of carrots had a lot of liquid, none when I froze them? Took a taste before cooking and the carrots were like rubber on the outside, kind of tough in the middle.

Anyway, cooked everything like normal and the carrots still had the weird texture but tasted okay, kind of sweet actually. Gross texture, I'll save them for the dog.

FYI what I found today:

Remember, you can find just about anything on the world wide web, including tips for freezing carrots raw. Donít do it! Enzymes that cause veggies to mature and decay continue to be active, even in the freezer. To stop their action and preserve flavor, color, texture and nutrient loss, you need to blanch veggies before freezing. Luckily, blanching is super easy to do.

Anyway, meat, taters and gravy came out fine although I did have to go through a 5# bag to get enough good ones.
