First make the wild garlic oil for the mayonnaise. Rinse the wild garlic, then blanch of 35 seconds in a pan of heavily salted, boiling water. Drain the water and plunge into some iced water, then pat dry with some kitchen towel
90g of wild garlic
450ml of rapeseed oil
Chop the wild garlic roughly and add to a blender, then pour in the rapeseed oil. Start blitzing on a low speed, then increase in speed for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the oil is a bright, vibrant green colour
Pass through a fine sieve, then through a sheet of muslin or a coffee filter. Keep in the fridge until needed
Whisk the egg yolks, mustard and vinegar in a bowl until smooth. Continue whisking and pour in a thin, steady stream of the wild garlic oil
3 egg yolks
1 tsp English mustard
2 tsp white wine vinegar
Keep whisking and pouring until all of the oil has been absorbed and has emulsified with the egg mixture - you should be left with a nice, thick green mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper and serve
