Homemade AnchoïadeINGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 clove garlic

  • The anchovy fillets from 1 2-ounce can

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar, or to taste


Fit the food processor with a blade, and set it to whirl.  Drop in the garlic, so it smashes to smithereens.  Drop in all the anchovies at once.  Add the olive oil and vinegar.  Then stop the machine, scrape down the sides, and whiz until pretty smooth.  Spoon into a small bowl, and serve with a few handfuls of fresh sugar snaps, or spoon it over roasted red and yellow peppers, or serve it as a dip for olive bread.  If you want to mellow out your anchovies, soak then in milk for 15 minutes, pat them dry, and then use them in this recipe.
