Ok, a little confession here. I love, no actually LOVE, mayonnaise. It’s like this incredible yummy and tasty thing that goes in every sandwich and salad and make things…hmm… to stick together.
Sorry what was that??? It’s packed with calories? Yes i know 😦 Storebought has a ton of preservatives?? Yes i know that too… And this was (note the tense i am using please) the reason why i didn’t eat it very often.
Up until a few weeks ago when @mymamus mum came to the rescue with an incredible recipe for homemade mayonnaise. And the best part? It ONLY takes about 5 minutes to make and has no preservatives or other bad stuff. Oh the joy…
So here is the recipe:
1 egg (room temp)
1 tbs white vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of white pepper
1 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp sugar
3/4 glass of extra light olive oil
All you need is an upright mixer/ blender. (I am afraid blenders like the magic bullet that they turn upside down won’t work).
Mix the egg, salt, vinegar, sugar, pepper and mustard for about 20 seconds. Then add the olive oil a little at a time and keep mixing for another 15-20 seconds. After you ‘ve added the oil the mayonnaise should have thickened and not be runny (if that is not the case add a little more olive oil). And that is all!
Notes: You can keep it in the fridge in a glass (only glass not plastic) container for up to 4 weeks. I usually make a double batch which lasts me that long.
