Have you ever thought about making your own home made mayonnaise? Well today is your lucky day. It is incredibly easy to make, all you need is a whisk, a bowl and some basic ingredients. An electric whisk will make this an easier job but its not too bad doing it with a hand whisk either, I have arthritis and I managed!
1 Egg Yolk (separated from the white)
Half a teaspoon of english mustard
1/2 Teaspoon of vinegar
pinch of salt and pepper
150ml rapeseed oil
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: n/a
Serves: Makes enough for 3 or 4 sandwiches, scale up to make more
Combine the egg yolk, vinegar, mustard salt and pepper in a bowl
Whisk for a couple of minutes and make sure it is mixed well
Add the oil a little bit at a time, making sure it is fully absorbed before adding more
Keep whisking and adding oil bit by bit until all of it has been absorbed
Spread on your favourite sandwich and never buy store bought mayonnaise again!
