Homemade mayonnaise

Homemade mayonnaise

Far easier than you think...

INGREDIENTS

2 large egg yolks
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (or to taste)
2 tsp water
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
1 tsp ground mustard
Sunflower oil - about 1 cup

PREPARATION

  1. Beat together - on a mixer, a hand mixer, a wand or even by hand- the eggs, water, vinegar, salt and mustard.
  2. When the mixture has slightly thickened, whisk in the oil just a few drops at first, building up to a slow, steady stream.
  3. Add vinegar or salt to taste.
  4. The mayonnaise is ready when the colour is pale yellow and thick enough to hold itself together.
  5. Keeps in the fridge for about 1 week.
