Mel and Mal's Homemade Mayonnaise

  • 2 free range egg yolks
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1½ tsp Dijon Mustard
  • Pinch Maldon sea salt
  • ¼ tsp white pepper
  • 150ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 150ml vegetable oil

So simple to make and as delicious as shop bought versions - but much cheaper!

Once you have got the hang of making mayonnaise you can add other ingredients such as garlic and herbs and good old Heinz tomato ketchup (to make a seafood sauce)

Serves : 6        Prep/Cooking Time : 15 minutes


Make the Basic Mayo

Simply place the eggs, lime juice, white wine vinegar, mustard, salt and white pepper in a bowl or food processor and blitz until well blended

Slowly add the 2 oils at a very slow trickle rate until the mayonnaise is thick and creamy

To Make a Garlic Mayo

Omit the white wine vinegar and puree 4 cloves of garlic and add finely chopped flat leaf parsley or any other herb that you fancy. Goes very well with steamed fish, chicken and vegetables
