Dehydrated carrots are important to have in storage because they can be used in numerous dishes, soups, and stews! You can dehydrate whole or sliced baby carrots, or sliced full-sized carrots.
A properly dehydrated carrot will “click” when dropped on the table and feel dry and not sticky to the touch. If yours do not feel this way, just put them back in the dehydrator for a few more hours!
Blanching carrots preserves the Beta-carotene which gives them their brilliant orange color! Click here to see a baby carrot that was blanched prior to dehydrating (right) compared to one that was not blanched beforehand (middle). What a difference!
