Fresh homemade mayonnaise

Fresh homemade mayonnaise...
is not that difficult to make at the comfort of your own kitchen.

You will only need 4 ingredients that you can find either in your larder or fridge : 1 fresh egg, lemon juice, sea-salt and oil.
The one thing you must exercise extra care is the EGG!
Please use the freshest egg you can find, to avoid food poisoning / salmonella.

Easy to whip mayonnaise

Use a jug with wide opening, add all ingredients... use a stick blender and blend till smooth and the mayonnaise thicken. Its that EASY! No kidding :P

And there is no curdling, no juggling mixer in one hand while the other hand pouring oil in a steady stream. Its super easy.

And as for the oil, use whatever you have in your larder as long as the oil is tasteless or just a hint of taste like light olive oil. You can add garlic, powdered mustard or herbs to your home made mayonnaise.
