Homemade Mayonnaise (5)1

low sugar apricot jamAs I most recently have a little time, I was looking on the web yesterday. Looking for new, interesting thoughts, inspirational dishes that I've never used before, to delight my family with. Searching for a long time unfortunately could not come across lots of interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this yummy and easy treat simply by accident on ambitiouskitchen. It seemed so yummy on its photos, it required fast actions.
It had been simple enough to imagine just how it is created, how it tastes and how much my husband will probably love it. Actually, it is rather simple to keep happy the man when it comes to cakes. Yes, I'm a lucky one. Or possibly he is.Anyhow, I got into the webpage and simply followed the precise instuctions which were coupled with impressive pics of the task. It really makes life rather easy. I can imagine that it is a slight hassle to shoot pics down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may ordinarily have gross hands so that i really appreciate the effort and time she put in to build this post .
That being said I am encouraged presenting my own, personal formulas in a similar fashion. Appreciate your the thought.
I was tweaking the main recipe create it for the taste of my family. I've got to mention it was a great outcome. They loved the taste, the overall look and enjoyed getting a delicacy like this in the midst of a stressful workweek. They basically wanted lots more, more and more. Hence the next occasion I'm not going to commit the same mistake. I'm gonna double the amount to keep them delighted.

I'm becoming increasingly obsessed with making my own everything. And for recent years months, I am making my very own mayonnaise! It is SO EASY. And the taste? Tangy and delicious! I seriously wonder why I ever ate the store-bought stuff… Store bought mayo and homemade mayo are like two totally different products. Trust me, the homemade stuff is WAY better. And you can make other fun stuff with it, like curried mayo dressing (see below for details)!
I personally use this recipe from The Clothes Make the Girl, and it comes out perfect every time. I make it in a food processor, though I've read that the blender works just as well. There are two keys to making perfect homemade mayo: room temperature ingredients, and a stable, patient hand.
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup plus 1 cup light-tasting olive oil
- Crack your egg right into a bowl and add the lemon juice. If your eggs or lemon juice are not already at room temperature, let them sit in the bowl together for 30 - 60 minutes.
- Add the mustard, salt, and 1/4 cup olive oil. Blend them together for 30 seconds or so.
- Now comes the hard part. Switch on your food processor and very slowly drizzle the remaining 1 cup of essential olive oil. You have to add the oil in a SLOW, STEADY stream. Your arm can get tired. Hang in there. Forgo the urge to just dump all of it in - it will break your mayo!
Once you've incorporated all of the oil, you will have a nice, thick, creamy, tangy mayo. It gets even thicker once you've chilled it in the ice box. Since it uses raw, fresh eggs, this mayonnaise will not keep forever. My principle is to keep it for starters week past the expiry date on the eggs. However you will know if it has gone off - it will split up and most likely not smell good.
Each time I make this mayo, I can even make two batches. To the next batch, I add an additional 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and 2 teaspoons of yellow curry paste. Curried mayo makes a truly divine salad dressing and dipping sauce. It's like crack in a jar. Seriously. You're welcome… ðŸ‚
A note on olive oil - I use Bertolli Extra Light Tasting coconut oil. This is not to be confused with extra virgin essential olive oil - they are not the same thing! I have made this mayo with regular extra virgin olive oil, although it comes out ok, it does taste decidedly olive-y. The extra light tasting essential olive oil doesn't have that heavy olive taste at all. And, as luck would have it, they carry the Bertolli Extra Light Tasting essential olive oil at Nakumatt! Â
