- Prep Time: few minutes
You can find a veritable boatload of recipes for home mayonnaise. I was successful once, and another time ended up in failure. Next time I wanted to be sure, so I followed the advice of "experts". I whipped it by hand, for a long time and painfully, but without a result. So I started collecting information from friends and using the process of trial and error I found way, and even managed to make it a bit more interesting. So here is a recipe for those of you who never even tried it before, I believe you will get it the first time.
- Ingredients for the basic mayonnaise:
- yolk - 4
- sunflower oil - 200ml
- salt and pepper
- lemon juice - 1 tblspn
- Honey - 1 tblspn
- Ingredients for hot mayonnaise:
- garlic - 1 or2
Prep time: 0 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Result: 2 - 3 portions
Basic mayo walkthrough variant 1: put the yolk (at room temperature) with pepper and salt into a tall dish - which should be a part of any run of the mill stick blender. If you don't have one, look for a similar one. The glass should be narrow and tall. Use the stick blender with egg whisk at maximum power - which usually means 5th degree or 700 W (when I used my older, weaker blender it never worked out). Gradually add oil until the cream is thick. The blending time depends on how thick you want the mayo to be. Finally add lemon juice, honey, blend a bit more and add salt if necessary. You can add spring onion or your favorite herb, depending on what dish are you going to use the mayo for.
The hot variant requires you to add a garlic that was pressed with a chilli pepper (first put he chilli on the bottom of the press and then the garlic) and mix it again The amount of chilli pepper depends on what kind is available to you and of course how hot you want it to be.
Basic Mayo variant 2: this part was suggested to me by a Slovakian friend over a glass of delicious wine. When he described it to me, I honestly thought he was joking. Except he wasn't! You will get the mayo in mere seconds! (In case you won't, by any chance, get the mayo using the whisk from the variant 1)
Put the 4 yolks, 200ml of oil, salt and pepper into a shaker bowl. Drop the stick of the blender to the bottom of the bowl, turn it on and very slowly bring it up. It's a matter of 10 to 15 seconds. Then carry on as in the variant 1. What do you think? This is how we do it in our home and we devote the rest of the time to enjoying good meals.
