How long will carrots that I've shredded in the food processor stay good in the fridge? Also what's the best way to store them?
I have carrots (from different sources) consistently lasting a month IF: -They are whole, unpeeled, with no cuts -Are stored inside a resealable bag that you can easily squeeze the excess air out of to minimize dehydration.
I have no firm experience on storing shredded, but you get a bit of an idea how long it might last by by how quickly it will go bad in a salad (a day or two). So as @Mark said, stored properly, you could probably only hope for a week.
Side-note, if you were looking to prolong the life of shredded carrot even more, you may be able to freeze it if it's in a sealed container, but I've not seen anyone do that personally, nor can I find anything online suggesting it works well. Might be worth the experiment though.
According to the website StillTasty, fresh, raw whole or cut up carrots will last 2 to 3 weeks in the fridge.
I would think that it would be a shorter time (1 week) for shredded carrots. I'd store them in a container with a tight sealing lid, or in a plastic bag with the air squeezed out.
