Carrot Confit

Confit is a French cooking technique where something is poached at low heat in oil for a long time. This process results in a rich, moist product that keeps well. Here, carrots are held in olive oil at a low enough temperature to retain the delicate, grassy flavor of extra virgin olive oil.
