Black Garlic Aioli Recipe

Black Garlic Aioli Recipe

So I think I’ve established just how much I love garlic – from my miso caramelised garlic bread, to making my own black garlic at home, I will endlessly try to find more excuses to have more garlic in my life.

I also really love mayo. The answer? Black garlic aioli.

Black garlic is made by slow cooking garlic at low temperatures, until the sugars caramelise to an inky black, leaving soft cloves that are so much sweeter than plain ol’ roasted garlic. I used a little squid ink here just to boost the colour along, but you don’t have to – the mayo will just be a deep, delicious caramel brown.

    This is sooo pretty. I can just imagine slathering it on burgers and confusing everyone who eats it hehe

    Tammi: this was AMAZING, made this for a meat fondue dinner party – it was an absolute favorite. Excellent flavor and so easy to make. I’ll definitely be making this again. Thank you for making me look like a better cook than I am!
