Preserving Carrots

When harvesting carrots, we generally have too many to eat fresh. We chop and freeze many for soups. We also use carrot juice to add to smoothies, so we juice all of our extra carrots and freeze in ice cube trays. Once frozen, we place the frozen cubes in quart size bags to later add to smoothies.


  1. When you juice a carrot, what do you do with the pulp that's left over? Do you add it to soups or stews? Compost it?

  2. You can use the pulp for carrot cake or compost it. I've debated about using it when I make chicken broth, but haven't tried it yet (I'm not sure how much flavor is left over in the dried pulp).

    There are a lot of recipes out there on ideas for using pulp but I haven't dived into that yet.
