Let's Make Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is one of those things that you'll stop buying as soon as you've mastered making it at home, and oh gosh, it's so easy!

One thing to bear in mind is that homemade mayonnaise won't last as long as mass produced versions. The reason? It isn't full of chemical preservatives and contains actual egg.... I know where my preferences lay. Take a look at the ingredients label on your Helman's at home - do you even know what half of that stuff is? Do you know why it's bright snowy white?

What's more, homemade mayonnaise is so much more tasty than a jar of off-the-shelf stuff, it won't be around for half as long anyway - you'll spoon it on to just about anything!


2 x medium eggs
1.5 tspns salt
1.5 tspns lemon juice
325ml extra virgin olive oil (use an alternative oil if your diet or kitchen require)

Make It
  1. Beat both eggs until fluffy. 
  2. Once you see bubbles forming in your beaten eggs, add the salt and lemon juice, and mix again until thoroughly combined. 
  3. Continue to mix on a high setting in your food mixer whilst slowly adding the oil. 
  4. Once entirely combined, spoon in to an air tight container and store in the fridge.

I always opt for mayonnaise on my chips and even in burgers, have you tried to make your own? I'd love to hear how you get on so please leave a comment below, or tag me in your photos on Instagram or Twitter (@ashlawrencerye).
