Mayonnaise

by: Debbi






This recipe includes instructions for making mayonnaise in the blender or by hand. It is lighter when made mechanically because the process uses a whole egg and is very quick. You can use either sunflower oil or olive oil, or a mixture of the two if you prefer. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

preparation

1.  Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature before you start. Put the egg yolks, vinegar, and salt into a mixing bowl that is set on a cloth to prevent it from slipping.

2.  Using a wire whisk, lightly whisk to break up the yolks. Gradually whisk the oil into the egg mixture, starting with a few drops at a time. Once you have added the same volume of oil as the original mixture of egg yolks and vinegar, you can add the oil a little more guickly. Keep whisking until all the oil is incorporated.
