Garlic mayo is quite possibly one of the best condiments out there (don’t argue with us on this!), so when we started to notice the first few sprouts of wild garlic appear in our local woodlands, we felt inspired!

This creamy concoction captures the essence of the Spring, infusing the tangy richness of traditional mayonnaise with the bold flavours of wild garlic. It’s great in a sandwich, with chips, or thinned down as a creamy salad dressing!

Whether you’re a seasoned forager, eager to plunder the woods for this fragrant herb, or simply a food enthusiast looking to elevate your dishes, this recipe is 100% worth finding the wild herb for. What’s more, it only takes a few staple pantry ingredients, and less than 5 minutes to make!

Read on for the full recipe. 


Method

Follow these steps to make our How To Make Wild Garlic Mayonnaise

1. Forage & Prep Your Wild Garlic

Head down to your local woodland and collect a few handfuls of big wild garlic leaves (these can be found from March to May). Once home, wash these under cold water to get rid of any dirt and debris. Pat dry and finely chop before moving on to the next step.

2. Add Your Ingredients To a Blender

Separate your egg whites and yolks. Add the yolks to a blender alongside the Dijon mustard, white wine vinegar, salt, and the chopped wild garlic leaves. Add the lid to your blender and blend on a high-speed setting. Slowly add rapeseed oil in a confident, steady stream – this should help everything emulsify.

Once all the oil is added and the mixture has reached a thick consistency, taste and add a few pinches of salt. Mix until combined (this should only take a few seconds!).

3. Add To a Sterilised Jar & Enjoy!

Once you’ve made your wild garlic mayo, add the finished product to a sterilised jar with an airtight lid. Keep in the fridge and enjoy for up to 5 days. We serve ours with potato wedges, in a sandwich, or to make coleslaw!


How To Serve Wild Garlic Mayo

Wild garlic mayo is just as versatile as the standard stuff. But, if you’re out of ideas, why not try it:

  • With chips or potato wedges
  • In a coleslaw or potato salad 
  • Thinned out as a salad dressing
  • Slathered on poultry or steak before grilling
  • Stirred into mashed potatoes

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Will the Wild Garlic Mayonnaise Keep in the Fridge?

When stored in an airtight container, your wild garlic mayonnaise should stay fresh for up to five days. Be sure to check for any signs of spoilage (a change of colour, or a fizzy taste) before using.

Can I Freeze Wild Garlic Mayo?

We don’t recommend freezing mayonnaise, as it can affect the texture and consistency. It’s best enjoyed fresh, so make just enough to use within 5 days for optimal flavour.

Can Substitute Wild Garlic With Another Herb?

While wild garlic adds the best flavour to this mayonnaise, you can experiment with other spring herbs such as:

  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Coriander
  • Dill 

Start with the same quantity (15g) of your wild garlic substitute but adjust if needed. You will likely end up needing to use more herbs to get the same strong flavour in the mayo.

How Do I Find Wild Garlic?

Wild garlic is relatively easy to forage, especially in British woodland areas during the spring. Look for long, lance-shaped leaves with a distinctive garlic scent. Be sure to properly identify the plant and forage responsibly, avoiding areas where it’s prohibited or endangered.
