In my garden carrots require a lot of work as I grow a big quantity every two years (about 60 litres or quarts with the leaves), a full wheelbarrow.
I fill a sieve I made (3’x3’, mesh size about half an inch). I clean them with a high pressure hose (Karcher) then I clean them one at a time. If the pressure was high enough the water would peel the carrot but I prefer peeling them by hand and I lower the pressure.
When peeled I slice them, fill bags (made to the crotchet hook by my mother-in-law), boil them (10 minutes), then I fill bags and store them in my freezer. Of course I choose the biggest varieties to have big slices.
