Making Mayonnaise

I made mayonnaise again--the first time since being in Penn Yan. I used the recipe from Root Cellaring by Mike and Nancy Bubel. The recipe is something that is surprisingly simple to make. If you have a blender and some basic ingredients, you can have a batch in a few minutes.

To make mayonnaise, you need two egg yolks, 1/2 teaspoon of dry mustard, 1 tablespoon of honey, 2 tablespoons of vinegar, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and a cup of salad oil.

Add all but the oil to the blender and blend it together until they are smooth. (I had to switch to a more conventional blender as I had not anticipated what an issue the absence of a lid would be). Once they're blended, slowly add the oil. The ingredients will take on the texture of mayonnaise.

It is wonderful...
