Yield Makes About 1/2 Cup
- 1 large clove garlic, or 2 small cloves
- 1 pinch of sea salt
- 1 large egg yolk
- About 1/2 cup mild olive oil
- Cut garlic into a few pieces, and pound them in a mortar. Add the salt, and mash to a paste. Add the egg yolk, and stir with the pestle to combine. Still using the pestle, work in the oil, a few drops at first, gradually increasing the flow as the yolk becomes tacky and opaque.
