  • carrots
  • water


  • Wash and peel carrots.
  • Cut carrots into your desired size and shape (sticks, coins, chunks).
  • Place the cut carrots in an air tight container (I used a wide-mouth mason jar but any air-tight container you have will work) and cover the carrots with water.
  • Place the lid tightly on your container and store carrots in the fridge. Use as desired for up to a week, changing out the water every few days to ensure freshness.
