Roasted Carrots and Chamomile

August 10, 2021

Roasted Carrots and Chamomile

12 carrots, peeled (reserve the greens of 6 carrots)
1 Anaheim pepper
1 jalapeno 
3-4 large shallots
3g dried chamomile
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
salt
fresh dill
olive oil
canola oil
 
Carrot and chamomile puree:
  1. Take 6 of the carrots, cut into large chunks, and cook in water seasoned with salt and sugar.
  2. Cook thoroughly; carrots should be nearly falling apart.
  3. Place into a blender and blend.
  4. Slowly pour in the chamomile brown butter until fully emulsified; the puree should go from being orange to yellow.
  5. Check for seasoning, add salt if necessary, and reserve. 
Roasted carrots:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Peel the remaining carrots and toss with olive oil, salt, and 2 tbsp of the Honey and Wild Chamomile Syrup.
  3. Place on a sheet tray with aluminum foil, roast until cooked through, roughly 10-15 minutes. (optional: finish with clarified butter in a pan until caramelized thoroughly.)
  4. Toss with olive oil, the remainder of the shrub, and keep warm until serving. 
Chamomile brown butter:
  1. Melt 1 stick of butter in a small pan and cook thoroughly until fine bubbles form; you’re looking to brown the butter and reserve the solids.
  2. Once finished, pour the excess butter into a small pan and deglaze the brown butter solids with the Wild Chamomile Vinegar.
  3. Take the now-clarified brown butter and add to the dried chamomile.
  4. Steep the chamomile, warming in a small pan if necessary.
  5. Strain through a coffee filter or paper towel to remove the chamomile particulate.
Fried peppers and onions:
  1. Finely dice the peppers and shallots and place into a pan with 1 stick of butter, melted, and canola oil.
  2. Bring up the temperature and fry in the butter/oil mixture.
  3. Cook until browned, but not burnt (the bubbles will become quite fine.)
  4. Pour through a sieve and place the fried onions and peppers onto a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
  5. Place into a bowl, toss with salt, and allow to cool.
Plating:
  1. On a plate, layer the components starting with with the carrot and chamomile puree, followed by the roasted carrots, then the fried shallots and peppers, garnishing with the dill and carrot greens.
