Mayonnaise Gluten free & dairy free !
Make Your Own Mayonnaise ! So much healthier then anything you could buy sitting on a super market shelf ! Fresh is always way better, I love making most of our own food because I know its fresh and exactly what we are eating ! So here is my recipe for creamy yummy mayo !
I remember the first time I tried to make mayonnaise about 20 years ago but it didn't turn out because I put the oil in too fast . So the secret to good creamy mayo is pouring in the oil very very slowly a steady drizzle and keep blending while pouring here is my recipe !
2 egg yolks ( I used free range).
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil.
1/3 teaspoon celtic salt.
1/2-1 tablespoon lemon juice.
1/2-1 tablespoon honey.
1/4 teaspoon of mustard powder (optional)
Note: Some people may find extra virgin olive oil tastes to strong if so use another vegetable oil. I use extra virgin olive oil for lots of recipes, I even use it in cake and muffin recipes.
Separate the eggs and put the yolks into blender or food processor with salt, honey and lemon juice and mix to creamy then add the oil very slowly a steady trickle while still blending it emulsifies and becomes thick and creamy store in a glass jar in the fridge. The colour will depend on the colour of the egg yolks my were really deep yellow. I never eat mayo from the shop most have gluten, dairy and soy ! So today to eat fresh home made mayo was lovely we had ours with free range chicken and quinoa salad, I'm looking forward to making my curried egg with mayo for lunch during the week.
On Saturday I will post my weekly biscuit recipe using the 2 egg whites that are left from making the mayo!
