storing carrots

Do your carrots get soft and bendy in the fridge? Mine always have, and it drove me bonkers until I realized (yesterday, actually) that they were drying out. To store them so they’ll last longer, remove their green tops, rinse and drain them before storing in a plastic bag in the coldest and most humid part of the fridge. Firm up limp carrots by cutting off one end and sticking them in ice water, cut side down.
