Garlic Scape and Basil Mayonnaise
Makes 2 cups
1/2 c. garlic scapes, sliced 1/8" thick
1/4 c. basil leaves, coarsely chopped
4 egg yolks
1 heaping t. Dijon mustard
3 T. lemon juice
3.4 t. salt
3/4 - 1 c. unrefined safflower oil
See HERE for a detailed description of the method.
Combine all but the oil in a pint jar and stir to combine.
Pour in the oil and wait 10-15 seconds until it has risen to the top.
Insert an immersion blender to the bottom of the jar and blend the first 6 ingredients. Tilt the head gently to slowly incorporate the oil. Use more oil if you like a stiffer mayonnaise, less if you like it more sauce-like.
