GRAINS OF MILK SMOKED WITH BREAD, SALTED CARROTS AND CARROT LEAVES

 

INGREDIENTS (serves 4):

 

Grains of milk:

750 ml. fresh milk

60 ml. lemon juice

40 ml. white vinegar

Hay for smoking

 

Bread:           

200 gr. stale breadcrumbs

10 ml. olive oil

Hay for smoking

Carrots:

12 small carrots with stems and leaves

100 ml. white wine

2 bay leaves

15 saffron threads

1 sprig thyme

1 clove garlic

6 gr. sea salt

 

 

PREPARATION:

 

Grains of milk: Mix the milk with the lemon juice and vinegar in a pan. Heat to 65ºC (149ºF) and keep at this temperature for about 10 min. Strain through a cloth and leave the milk solids to dry in the refrigerator overnight. Next day, press and break up the dried milk into grains. Smoke lightly over the hay.

 

Bread: Smoke the breadcrumbs over the hay and leave to stand in the smoker for at least 2 h. Dry in the oven at 185ºC (365ºF) for 35 min. Grate very finely then form crumbs by mixing in the olive oil.

 

Carrots: Peel the carrots and set aside. Add the spices and salt to the white wine in a pan and boil for about 5 min. Add the carrots and leave to stand overnight. Use the leaves and stems as a garnish.

TO SERVE:

 

Arrange some milk grains on a flat dish and top with slices of carrot with some of the sauce. Finish with a few grains of bread and some carrot stems.
