Everybody loves mayonnaise, but for some reason many people think it is hard to make. If you have a staff mixer (one of those nifty handheld blenders) it could not be easier. Give it a whiz. This mayonnaise is especially fantastic with homemade fries
that have been sprinkled with flaked sea salt and just a touch of white wine vinegar.
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 2 minutes
- 1 cup sunflower oil
- 1 organic egg
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 1 tsp mustard
- Pinch of salt
In a narrow, tall cylinder (e.g. the one that comes with your stick blender) combine the oil, egg, lemon juice, white wine vinegar, mustard and seasoning. Hold the stick blender all the way into the cylinder and turn it on. The sauce will emulsify into thick white mayonnaise. Add more oil if you prefer it thicker.
This is a raw egg mayonnaise recipe, and it is not advised for the very old, very young, pregnant or otherwise immunologically challenged. Using organic eggs is said to reduce the risk of salmonella poisoning significantly. You can also use pasteurized eggs.
