Food Prep Friday: Homemade Mayo

Food Prep Friday: Homemade Mayo
Author: Coach Dean
This is one of my favorite recipes to make; it’s almost like a science experiment! As long as you follow the directions (room temperature is crucial) you should end up with the tastiest and healthiest mayo you have ever had. One note of caution – “real” mayonnaise contains raw eggs, so certain folks (like pregnant moms) should be cautious. Choose a pasteurized in the shell egg instead.
Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 cup light olive oil
Instructions
  1. Place egg, dry mustard, salt, and lemon juice in the blender.
  2. Add 1/4 cup of olive oil and whirl until well mixed.
  3. SLOWLY incorporate the remaining olive oil. Drizzle it in with as small a stream as possible. You’ll hear it start to emulsify. Don’t rush this. Be Patient. Continue to blend until all the oil is incorporated and your mayo is light and fluffly.
