When cooked, fresh carrots lend a sweet, slightly tangy flavor to dishes. They're also delicious raw. Here's how to prepare fresh carrots.

How to Prepare Carrots

  • Work with 1 pound of fresh carrots at a time.
  • Wash, trim, and peel or scrub, if necessary.
  • Cut standard-size carrots into 1/4-inch-thick slices or into strips (1 pound makes about 2-1/2 cups slices or strips).

Note: You can use purchased peeled baby carrots as well. In that case, measure 3-1/2 cups baby carrots and follow the steps below.

How to Cook Carrots in the Microwave

  • Place 1 pound carrots in a casserole dish with 2 tablespoons water.
  • Microwave, covered, on 100 percent power (high) until crisp-tender, stirring once:

    -- 5 to 7 minutes for strips
    -- 7 to 9 minutes for baby carrots
