Carrot reduction

Reduction means making the liquid in a component evaporate to strengthen its flavour. This is commonly done with stocks and fonds, but carrot is also a perfect ingredient with which to do this. The addition of orange and balsamic vinegar makes the flavour even more exquisite; this syrup is perfect as an addition to the wide range of savoury applications that can use a subtle sweetness for balance. The olive oil adds a creamy note.

Makes 100ml.
