Homemade Mayonnaise is easy to make. It is a great alternative to store bought mayo, as you can know what ingredients are in it and best of all, you can make it and have it on hand on very short notice. It is also very economical than buying in the store. Here are the simple ingredients and directions to having your own homemade mayonnaise!
What You Need:
- 1 whole egg (I use fresh from the hen house)
- 1 cup Sunflower oil (or another mild tasting oil)
- 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
- salt to taste
- dash of cayenne pepper
- 2 Tablespoons honey
Use a food processor or blender for the best results. In the processor, mix together the egg, vinegar, and dry mustard. While the machine is continuously running, add in the oil. Do this at a steady, fine stream, taking your time. This needs to be done at a steady, fine stream so that your mayo will thicken up. Take time in doing this and you will get favorable results.
When you have completed adding all the oil, add in the remaining ingredients.This recipe will keep in the frig for approximately one week.
Enjoy! Until next time, Julie
