Wild Garlic Mayonnaise

Wild garlic mayonnaise is a super tasty way of using wild garlic leaves. This wild garlic mayonnaise is great as a spread in a sandwich, with fried fish, as french fries dipping sauce, or how else you would eat mayonnaise. Wild garlic leaves have an amazing garlic/onion taste but are not as strong as garlic. This means that the mayonnaise becomes super delicate and difficult to leave alone in the fridge.

Try making the wild garlic mayonnaise the day before you need it, since leaving it in the fridge for a day, intensifies the wild garlic flavor. The wild garlic mayo stays good in the fridge for about 2 weeks.

Total Time 15 mins
Course Sauces
Servings 1 portion

Ingredients
  

  • 1 oz (30 grams) wild garlic leaves, rinsed and chopped
  • 1 ¼ cups (3 dl) rapeseed oil
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  • In a food processor or blender, blend wild garlic together with 1/4 cup (1/2 dl) rapeseed oil. Place the wild garlic/oil mixture in a small bowl, and set aside.
  • Clean the food processor/blender and put egg yolks, apple cider vinegar, salt, and sugar. Pulse a few times to combine.
  • Place the remaining rapeseed oil in a squeeze/sauce bottle.
  • Let the food processor/blender run at medium speed and trickle in a fine stream of oil (using the squeeze bottle). Try to do it in a period of about 5 minutes. When all oil is used, you should have a nice firm mayonnaise.
