This mayonnaise recipe is a great alternative to your "go to" store bought variety that has a bunch of added sugar and preservatives; and it's so easy to make you can "whip" it up in no time at all. And, as far as I'm concerned, it tastes much better!
1 whole egg
1 – 1¼ cups extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
¼ tsp. dry mustard powder
salt and pepper to taste
honey to flavour (optional)
Process egg, lemon juice and mustart in the blender or processor for a few seconds. While the machine is running, add the oil in a fine stream. Do not add oil quickly; it should take at least 60 seconds.
As the mayonnaise thickens, the sound of the machine will deepen.
Use right away
Note: This recipe may be made in a blender or in a food processor. If made in a processor the recipe can be doubled. However, the recipe cannot be doubled if made in a blender, as it will not thicken properly.
