The New Orleans Restaurant Marmalade That's The Talk Of The Town
By ANNA BOISSEAU
Though New Orleans is best known for their Cajun and Creole restaurants, many exciting newcomers are bringing new cuisines to the city. One such eatery is a breakfast spot called Molly’s Rise and Shine in NOLA's Irish Channel neighborhood, a sister restaurant to the famous award-winning Turkey and the Wolf.
Molly’s Rise and Shine is best known for a yogurt breakfast dish, consisting of a tangy yogurt topped with Nini's granola, fruit, mint, lemon zest, and an unusual addition: carrot marmalade. This starring condiment is made using carrots stewed with apples and comforting spices like cardamom, star anise, and cinnamon.
To make this carrot marmalade at home, cook down carrots with the aforementioned spices, apples, lemon zest, and sugar before blending the mixture with honey. Top yogurt with the marmalade for a dish that, as one Yelp reviewer put it, "frankly makes no sense to me on paper, but somehow is absolutely perfect."
