Chive Blossom Garlic Aioli

Makes 1 cup

Ingredients

1 egg
2 tablespoons garlic, chopped
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoon sherry vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chive blossoms

Directions

In a blender or food processor, place egg and chopped garlic. Whirl until garlic is smooth. With the motor running, add the oil in a slow stream, until the sauce is thick and emulsified. Add the vinegar and salt. The sauce should be creamy and mayonnaise-like and will have a nice garlic bite. Add one tablespoon of the chive blossoms and blend a few more seconds. Place the aioli in a small bowl and mix in remaining chive blossoms. If the aioli is runny, this may mean the egg was old. To fix this problem, either try again with a fresher egg or add store-bought mayonnaise to the sauce.
