If you are unfamiliar with sous vide cookery, the first thing you should know is thatsous-videisFrench for “under vacuum.”Sous vide bags, like the FoodSaver® Sous-vide Vacuum Seal Bags, are completely airtight. The lack of air prevents the sous vide bags from floating during the cooking process, which is important for consistent cooking results.

You’ll want to stock up on good quality sous vide bags like these, because their multi-layered construction resists punctures. Using the FM2000 system with these sous vide bags provides a powerful heat-seal.

Once you’ve sealed a bag, you can put it the freezer for later—and then, when you’re ready, it can go straight from the freezer to a hot water bath. No defrosting required!

In addition to being freezer safe, they’re also suitable for the microwave and fridge, and are available in a variety of sizes. That gives you the flexibility to cook as many or as few sous vide carrots (or any other food) as you wish.

Recipe Notes

The drained cooking liquid is not suitable for reducing as a sauce; it is high in salt (more like a brine than a sauce), and because of this it's too salty to use as additional sauce for serving. I know this because I already tried it so you didn't have to. 🙂
