Alioli or garlic mayonnaise is so tasty & so easy to make at home, I also think it tastes much better than the store bought jars. I first tried alioli while on holiday in Spain. It must've been during the early 1980's while in the Costa Blanca area. At the time it was served with a meal, in a small dish (finger bowl size) & seemed to accompany every main meal. So, I guess as I was the youngest it was down to me to try it, maybe I was the adventurous one in my family........or maybe I had no choice? anyway, whatever the reason it tasted delicious! This recipe does require the use of a blender making it easier & fool proof.
- Place egg & garlic in blender & whizz until garlic is smooth.
- Lower the speed & add the olive oil in a slow stream, with the motor still going until the oil has emulsified & thickened.
- Add lemon juice & salt.
Even with a little extra garlic, this recipe came out tasting too 'eggy'. The egg was fresh from my hen house today. Won't use this as a garnish or spread, but will use it as a noodle base. I think that it would be better without the yolk.
