RECIPE: Chive Blossom Mayonnaise

We LOVE chive blossoms!  Here's one of my favorite ways to use them.

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
