Homemade Mayo

Welcome to another exciting edition of Kitchen Adventures!  (Insert theme music of your choice) Today, we’ll be exploring home made condiments, specifically mayonnaise. Yep mayo, the most boring of Goop Group. Mayo isn’t actually as bland so you might think. If you make it yourself… This recipe for homemade mayo uses just 5 ingredients that you probably already have.

You will need
3 Eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp mustard
1/4 cup vinegar
1 1/2 cup oil
A blender

How to
Add all of the ingredients to the blender except the oil. Combine well. Add the oil slowly while the blender is running. Blend until thick. Takes 10-15 minutes. Scrape into a jar with an air tight lid and place in the fridge. Makes just over a pint of mayonnaise.

That’s all there is to it, folks!

A few notes
I used a stick blender, a regular blender will work also, and a food processor, but you will need to stop to push down the sides. Also, be mindful of the heat of whatever appliance you use. If it becomes too hot, stop and allow it to cool.
You can change the spices you put in per your preference. I have made this recipe with vegetable oil and coconut oil. I noticed no difference between the two. You can use whatever oil you choose… Though I would recommend against the motor oil.
This mayo will not be as thick as what you by in the store, but it is plenty thick for spreading on sandwiches. I haven’t tried it in a salad yet, but I’ve already decided to switch to homemade mayo completely. It will keep for several weeks in your refrigerator.
