I had some carrots in a compartment of my fridge that must have gotten too cold and they froze. I know typically carrots are supposed to be cooked or blanched before freezing. Can I still use these in a soup or something or should I toss them?
I'm not a huge expert in this but I know that keeping carrots in the ground over the winter is one method of "preserving" them - just go out, brush off the snow off the tops and yank them out when you need them.
Of course the ground insulates differently than your fridge.. but I can't imagine your carrots aren't fine.
The texture might change just a bit-- if you use them raw, they won't be quite as crisp. The blanching before freezing helps protect the texture. But otherwise, they're fine. This has happened to us so many times.
