Elderly baby carrots

I found a package of baby carrots in the fridge that I should have "used by June 6". They were well sealed, taste fine, and have no mold. I plan on roasting them with some (fresh) cauliflower. Should be OK, si?

I would think so. Root vegetables can be stored to last all winter.

Baby carrots tell you when they're bad. They'll be slimy or moldy or just generally look really bad.

I went ahead and roasted them. They turned out fine! They looked a bit dried out initially out of the package, but no mold or slime.

I usually freeze veg before the use by date, missed 'em.

I just go by the old fashion way, before dated food. If it looks ok, smells ok, eat it!

I roasted them with the cauliflower, they were fine. Tonight I pureed them into a soup, along with some Greek yogurt and a smidge of Velveeta, nutmeg, shallots, and red pepper flakes. It was quite good, kinda tasted like pumpkin soup.
