Homemade Mayonnaise

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing how to make homemade mayonnaise, another recipe I made teaming up with my mom to make it in English and Spanish =D like when we made the Tenderloin Steaks with Red-Wine Mushroom Sauce, Yummm. It’s fun to be learning new things and also being with her in the kitchen making yummy recipes!

Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe

Even though it is available ready-made in jars, tubs and tubes the flavour doesn’t compare to a homemade mayonnaise. It’s super easy to make and it’s healthier and you can make a lot of other sauces and dressings from there.

Ingredients:

 

  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup of Canola oil {this measure is aproximate}
  • 1 tsp of white vinegar
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • Pinch of salt
  • Black Pepper

 

Directions

 

First of all, put the egg yolks into a blender, add the garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mix well all of these together. Then, add a continuous thin drop of oil to the egg mixture and mix this in.

As silly as it may sound, the secret to a great mayonnaise is making sure to be pouring the oil in a very, VERY thin but steady stream, keeping the blender going all the time. Don’t worry, it won’t take all day long, because after a few minutes after you’ve added several drops of oil, the mixture will begin to thicken and go very stiff and lumpy. When all the oil has been added {it’s up to you if you add the whole cup or you can stop when the texture is good enough for you}, taste, adjust the flavouring by adding more vinegar, if desired, and season with a little more salt and black pepper to taste.

The homemade mayonnaise can be served at once or kept in the fridge for up to one day.

Serve and Enjoy!

    Hi..i wanted to ask can we store this mayo for a longer time like the ready made stuff?

    1. Camila

      Hi Sana! Actually no! Sadly egg and oil are really delicate and it’s not a good idea to store longer than 24 hours. Homemade Mayonnaise is more like for making and eating right away!

      Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate it!

    I have never made homemade mayonnaise before, but it looks easy to make and I am sure it tastes much better then store bought. Thank you for sharing at Tasty Tuesdays.

    There’s another easiest way to make mayonaisse. You put all the ingredients in a narrow vase, but the arm of the hand blender has to fit in. Start the blender leaving it down unmoving for a few seconds & then rise it very slowly moving it up & down till all the oil is incorporated. The more oil the thicker the mayonaisse.
    That’s how I used to do it before the industrial one came along. I still do it when I feel like it

    This looks great! I’ve been wanting to make mayonnaise for the longest time, but it just seems so intimidating for some reason! I’ll have to give it a try sometime soon! Yours sounds great!!
