Ajo Aceite

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A great dipping sauce for crusty breads or tortilla chips, etc.

8 cloves garlic
1/3 teaspoon fine sea salt, perhaps more
1 egg
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons hot water
few pinches (threads) of saffron, if desired

With steel chopping blade in food processor, chop the garlic with the salt, or use a mortar and pestel to make a paste. Add the egg and lemon juice, blend about 30 seconds. With the motor running, drizzle in the oil and water. Whirl in the saffron, if using. Refrigerate until serving time. Great served with paella along with crusty bread or crispy tortilla chips.
