Basic Mayo recipe

Homemade mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is not difficult to make at the comfort of your own kitchen.

Homemade mayonnaise is definitely much better than store bought bottle of mayo.
At least with homemade mayo, we will use best ingredients and no preservatives.

Ingredients To Make Mayonnaise

In order to whip up your own mayonnaise, 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, then pasteurize the eggs first before using. 
Pasteurizing eggs will eliminate and lower the chances of food borne illnesses.

How To Make Mayonnaise?

I used a glass measuring cup.
Measure and add all ingredients into the jug.

I used 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. It is super easy.

What type of oil is best for making Mayonnaise?

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.

I prefer to use canola oil to make my mayonnaise, as olive oil tend to have a stronger colour and flavour.

Notice all my mayonnaise photos? All has a tinge of yellow because I used olive oil in mind.

What other ingredients can be added to my homemade Mayonnaise?

You can add garlic, powdered mustard or herbs to your home made mayonnaise.

How long can you keep the mayonnaise for?

"According to Delia Smith, it should be stored in a screw tight jar and kept refrigerated for no longer than a week."
Follow the expert advice above :D 

Keep refrigerated in a air-tight container or bottle.
