Basic Mayonnaise Recipe

August 29, 2010thecoffeebreak
Once you’ve tried homemade mayonnaise you will never go back to store-bought. Easy to make and is so versatile. For example, add 2 small garlic cloves and you will have your own Aioli; or mix with 2 teaspoons of curry powder and viola you have curry mayo. So try, experiment and enjoy!
Prep time : 5 min
Total time : 10 min
(Makes approx. 200 grams)
2 egg yolks
½ tsp lemon juice
½ tsp vinegar
200 ml oil
½ tsp sugar
½ tsp salt
Pinch of freshly ground pepper
In a bowl, beat egg yolks, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, pepper and sugar until thick and pale yellow.
Continuing to whisk, slowly add in a thin stream of oil and keep whisking until thickens. If it is too thick to your liking, you can add little water to thin it.
Taste and if require add more salt or pepper.

Place in the air-tight container and refrigerate for up to a week.

    Homemade mayo is SO much better than the store bought stuff 🙂 I've recently started making my own & wow, what a difference! I'm bookmarking this so I can try it next time 🙂
