Corn husk and lovage oil

The husk from 4 corns

320 grams

neutral oil (I use sunflower oil)

30 grams

lovage leaves

First take the husks from the corns and toast them slightly with a blowtorch. This will create a really nice smoky or barbeque flavor. Now place the husks in a vacuum bag and also add the neutral oil. I use sunflower oil. Vacuum this 100%. After that steam it at 85 degrees Celsius for 50 minutes. You can also use a sous-vide for this. Then let the husks drain on a fine sauce sieve and use a ladle to press out any oil so you don’t waste a single drop. Now transfer the lovage leaves into a blender and also add 300 grams of the husk oil. Blend this till the temperature of the oil is 65 degrees Celsius. It will heat up from the friction. Then let it drain on a sieve that’s lined with a kitchen paper to clarify it. Do this in your fridge so the oil doesn’t turn brown.
