I bought a ton of carrots so I will need to blanch and freeze. Please tell me I do NOT have to peel them first....

Somebody on her blog (Pioneer Woman, maybe?) never peels. She just brushes them really well under running water. But that's to cook and serve. Don't know why freezing would be any different.

Yeah, I don't either. I only peel when the young grandkids are around. Hope someone has tried it successfully & pipes in...

Started peeling and it's not too bad thanks to my miracle Cutco peeler. They aren't as fresh as they could be so if peeling makes them not bitter, might as well. Going to the work of blanching....
