Home-made Mayonnaise

Hi there,

So this my latest challenge in my culinary adventures, mayonnaise.  I have been wanting to make this for a while now and I finally tried it and here is the result.  This is my second attempt and both times its been a success.  This recipe is very sour because of the amount of lemon juice, but I love the lemony taste.  Added to just cooked pasta you hardly taste it, but if its too sour then substitute the lemon with water.  For this recipe I've used canola oil.


1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon water
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 cup oil

In a bowl add the egg yolk, salt, water and lemon juice and whisk.  Gradually add oil in a thin stream and whisk continuously.  You will see the mixture begin to thicken. Just keep adding the oil a little at a time. This whole process takes about 20minutes and makes just over half a cup of mayonnaise.

Store in the fridge until you are ready to use it, store for up to one week.

Sunday lunch. Chicken stips with butternut fries and pasta with some home made mayonnaise...

I totally love working in my kitchen and trying new things.  This week's challenge... home made mayonnaise!!!
I love mayo with everything... yes... I am one of those... ♥
Anyway.  For this meal I cut the butternut into strips and fried them in about a teaspoon of canola oil. Once fried I sprinkled it with mixed herbs. They taste amazing. You can even leave them slightly crunchy. Delish.
The chicken was fried in a non-stick pan.
Boil pasta until tender.
Toss all ingredients together and spinkle with some olive oil and mixed herbs.
For the mayo recipe check out blog tomorrow.
