Aioli is an emulsion of egg and oil. Add a little sweetener, and it becomes homemade healthy mayonnaise.
What is spring garlic (also known as Green Garlic)? It is immature garlic harvested when the farmers thin the garlic fields. By removing some of the spring garlic, there is more room for the rest of the garlic to grow.
Is homemade mayonnaise hard? NO! The only trick is to slowly drizzle the oil into the blender instead of dumping it in all at once.
If you don’t have any spring garlic, you can swap out a few cloves of garlic instead.
