. Asgar, A. and D. Musaddad, 2006. Optimizing of method, temperature, and time of blanching for processing of dried carrot. The purpose of this research was to find out the method, temperature, and time of blanching on the characteristics of dehydrated carrot. The research was conducted from October to November 2004. The research was arranged in a split plot design with 2 x 6 factorial and, 3 replications. Main plot consisted of steam blanching and water blanching. Subplot consisted of temperature and time of blanching (1) 65°C for 15 minutes, (2) 65°C for 30 minutes, (3) 75°C for 10 minutes, (4) 75°C for 20 minutes, (5) 85°C for 5 minutes, and (6) 85°C for 10 minutes. The results of this research showed that dried carrot processed using water blanching at 85°C for 10 minutes was the best, with the properties of dried carrot were 7.53% moisture, 9.27% dry matter, 340.83% rehydration ratio, 68.55 mg/100 g ascorbic acid, and 0.197% β-caroten.
