How to make Garlic Mayonnaise

This is a recipe that I have developed in my quest to make a really good garlic mayonnaise.
You see it’s not just about crushing some garlic and adding to the mix, you have to infuse the oil that you are using to make the mayonnaise.

You will need;

1 – Head of Garlic
300 Ml Vegetable Oil
2 - Egg Yolks
15 Ml – Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon – Dijon Mustard
Salt and Ground Black Pepper



Split the head of garlic and put pressure on each clove with the flat of a knife just until you here them crack (this releases flavour and makes them easier to peal) peal them, put them in a pan and pour in the 300 Ml of oil.

Put the pan on a low heat and poach the garlic in the oil for about 30 minutes, 100 degrees C would be about the right temperature.
After 30 minutes take the pan off the heat and allow to cool, you don’t want to make mayonnaise with oil that is higher than room temperature.
When it’s cool gently mash the garlic to release more of its flavour and pour through a sieve, then discard.

Once you have a thick emulsion you can pour the oil in a steady stream as you whisk until the mixture is smooth and thick, then season to taste if needed.
