    Can I can store bought carrots? They are the little ones. Do I need to peel them since they are already peeled?

    If they are those little ones that are called baby carrots they have already been peeled. They will can fine. If they are small enough you don't have to cut them up...but I would probably cut them into half inch chunks just to make sure.

    Oh....a pinch of sugar in the jar makes them taste better.
