Original recipe: Immersion Blender Mayonnaise
Chive Blossom Mayonnaise
There are two ways to make this.
(1) You can add the chive blossoms to the egg-lemon-mustard-salt mixture before adding the oil. Stir to make sure they're covered with egg, add the oil and proceed with the recipe. That's what I did in the photo above. This gives you chive flavor distributed evenly thoughout.
(2) You can stir them in after the mayonnaise is made in which case you'll get a burst of chive flavor every now and then.
In both cases use 1/4 c. of chive blossoms for one recipe. (Use more if you want a really strong chive flavor.) Here's how to harvest chive blossoms.
I use this for egg salad, ham salad, chicken salad, tuna salad, potato salad, dipping sauce for crudites, and as a spread for sandwiches. It would also be good with these carrot pancakes.
