new mayo recipe

August 8, 2011 in Dressings and Sauces

I would like to take a moment to announce that I feel I have finally mastered the mayonnaise.

I have made it many times, many ways and I am downright proud of my last batch. Now if Shane eats it all in one sitting, I might strangle him.

Mayonnaise is labor intensive!

But worth it.

2 whole eggs-room temperature

2 cups olive oil (NOT Extra Virgin)

1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

1 teaspoon sea salt, added at the very end

Blend eggs, ACV, lemon juice, and mustard together in vitamix. Then slowly, drip by sad little drip, add the Olive Oil.

I keep my Vitamix set on variable between 3-5.

It usually starts to emulsify around the end of the first cup of oil. Once it starts to thicken you can add the second cup in a steady stream.

Once all the mayo is done blending, I add the salt and give it a last little whirl.

    YUM! I’m going to have to try this! I feel like I can do this kind of thing now that I have no house guests, school is in session and life is on a schedule (somewhat)

    Yum is right! I LOVE mayonnaise, but have never had home made! Sooo… What’s the “extra virgin” mean in olive oil anyways? And could I get yummy results by just hand mixing? No vitamix here…

    I would love to try this! Just a couple of quick questions – can you use a food processor; and I second the first question, how long will it keep in the fridge? Thanks for sharing this yumminess with us!

    great recipre–a little bland for us, so I will probably use red wine vinegarm maybe more lemon juice and a l iitle more mustard.

    Mayonnaise was always a liitle tricky and I little “iffy”, but this one worked great. I agree that for us it was a little bland and will try the suggestions of the other person who said the same thing–red wine vinegar, more lemon, more mustard.
