Modern home kitchen completely discredited the good name of mayonnaise — now his shamelessly shove in hot dishes, completely forgetting that this sauceis not intended for heat treatment. At the same time, as refills for some saladsor cold sauce for fish and meat snacks people (home!). Perhaps preparing mayonnaise at home, you stop buying it at the store, your home — made mayonnaise will be much tastierand no powdered eggs, preservatives and other harmful additives, which is literally packed with mayonnaise industrial.


Ingredients for 8 servings:

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 tablespoon of wine vinegar or lemon juice

A little theory

There are several points that should be taken into account when making homemade mayonnaise. Firstly, eggs — they must be fresh. Secondly, oil from it largely depends on the taste of the finished sauce. Add in the mayonnaise only Extra Virgin olive oil is not a good idea, it will be noticeable taste bitter. The combination of Extra Virgin olive oil + standard olive oil at a ratio of 1:1 gives the best result, but you can use other types of vegetable oil including sunflower, corn and so on. Thirdly, the method of cooking.

Whatever you may say, I am convinced that there is no difference, what to prepare mayonnaise in a food processor, blender or in a bowl with a whisk, the result would not be affected. Please use the method that you prefer. Finally, pitfallshe actually one: If you add the oil too long, the sauce will seize. In this case, beat another egg yolk and knead it failed mayonnaise as if you added the oil. That’s the trick!



Spice up egg yolks with mustard salt and pepper and whisk together. Continuing to whisk, add the butter first, little by little, literally drop by drop, then whenwill notice that sauce «grabbed« and visibly thickens, you can add more. In the end, you can pour the oil without ceasing is important, don’t forget to whip up.Now try again, if necessary, and season pour vinegar or lemon juice. Spread mayonnaise, you’ll notice that he bought lighter shades and liquid consistency, but if desired it can be diluted with water or broth. If you prepare the mayonnaise with additives (such as herbs)it’s time to add them. The finished mayonnaise last in the refrigerator for a few days, most importantly how should stir before using.
