How to make an original “ALL I OLI” o “AJO-ACEITE” from Valencia, Spain

This is a popular valencian garlic sauce that goes very well with grilled meat and roasted pepper, aubergine (Escalivada) and is a excelent arroz a banda paella mate or simply with fresh bread . I have seen many spellings for this (i.e. alioli, aioli…) but the real name is “All i Oli” – from the Valencian for Garlic and Oil – and these 2 are the only ingredients although with egg to ensure the consistency of the sauce, which with our without egg should look like mayonnaise.

TRICKS:

It is recommended to remove the egg from the fridge an hour or two before use.
We recommend a steady pace of one revolution per second aprox.
While we pour the oil, if we see that is becoming less thicker should stop adding oil until, stirring constantly, we regain the creamy texture.
