Recipe Notes

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: If you are peeling and chopping whole carrots, you can do that a day or two in advance. Additionally, you can also measure out all of the ingredients you will need, store them in a gallon-sized ziplock container, and add them to your slow cooker on the day of serving.
  • To Store: Keep leftover carrots in an airtight container for up to 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator.
  • To Freeze: It is so simple to freeze these carrots in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 to 6 months.
  • To Reheat: You can warm these back up in a skillet or in the microwave.
