Freezing Carrots

I found a great deal on carrots at the store this week and bought 10 pounds. I am wanting to freeze them to eat as a side-vegetable latter on. Any ideas on the best way to do this? I am supposing that I have to blanch/boil them for a bit first but don't know how long. Any help is appreciated.

<P>Thanks,

<tr><td bgcolor="#ffffff" colspan="2">Wash and scrape or wash and dice or section lengthwise. Small carrots may be frozen whole. Scald carrots 3 min & whole carrots 5 min. cool, drain and pack in vacuum bags or plastic freezer boxes or freezer jars. Seal, label and freeze. Hope this helps.</td></tr>

<tr><td bgcolor="#ffffff" colspan="2">If you have a baby or know someone who has a baby who is eating food, you can cook some of them, mash in a blender, and freeze individual servings in ice cube trays. After they are frozen, pop out and put in a large baggie in the freezer. One cube is usually the perfect size for a beginning eater! My son loved them!</td></tr>

<tr><td bgcolor="#ffffff" colspan="2">I bought a lot of carrots. I want to freeze them for making carrot cake later on. Can I grate, spread out on a cookie sheet to freeze quickly, then bag them? I have bags of grated zucchini bagged in the freezer that make excellent bread.</td></tr>
