I love a great mayonnaise but don’t always take the time to make it and usually stay with plain old balsamic vinegar which I also enjoy, but do get a little bored with it.
A problem with most bought mayonnaise, it is filled with all sorts of ingredients that I have not heard of and chemicals that I usually try to avoid and a flavor that I do not enjoy not to mention the added calories.
While reading the Fox news on my Ipad the other night I came across this mayonnaise recipe and decided I would make it, adding some of my spices it is kinda delicious.
I am now going to share it with you as it is quick and easy to make. The good thing about this is that it is fresh, hasn’t been in the bottle for some weeks and nutritious as you want it to be.
Mayonnaise for you Recipe
Eggs, vinegar, lemon juice, water, salt, cayenne pepper and extra virgin olive oil.
Separate three eggs and put their yolks in a mixing bowl, along with two tablespoons of vinegar, two tablespoons of water and two tablespoons of lemon juice.
Heat the mixture on your stove top at around 150 degrees for one minute. Stir continually for that minute.
Place mixing bowl on the counter and allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes.
Add ingredients for flavor
Add a half tablespoon of cayenne pepper, a half tablespoon of salt and a bit of spicy mustard to the mixture. Then whisk the mixture until the ingredients blend together. Desire a little more kick? Consider splashing a bit more pepper in there next time. Want thicker mayonnaise? reduce the water.
I like to add a little garlic to this for extra flavor.
Slowly add high-quality extra virgin olive oil, teaspoon by teaspoon, perpetually whisking, until your mixture reaches the proper consistency of mayonnaise. This should take up to one and a half cups of olive oil. Remember to fully integrate each teaspoon of olive oil before moving onto the next.
I hope you give this a try because it is worth it.
