dry mustard powder
TWO SECRETS: To make mayonnaise come out with the right consistency, (and thus creamy taste), you MUST start with a very, very dry blender, and you must pour the oil in excruciatingly slowly. Do these two things, and you will never, ever buy store-bought mayonnaise again!
"Miracle Whip", add 1 to 2 Tbsp. sugar. (I don't do this, as I make my own mayonnaise for health reasons, as follows...)
HEART HEALTHY VERSION: use extra-virgin olive oil (organic if you can find it), and organic, free-range eggs.
I didn't like this at all! It was nice and creamy, but it had NO mayo flavor. I added more salt, vinegar and lemon juice, garlic, paprika, sugar, anything to give it some flavor. Very oily also. I'll keep looking for a better recipe.
PattyJoy, thank you so much for your tips on making this mayo! I ended up making two batches cause it tasted so good! I used Canola oil, less oily taste to it, and added 1 TBS sugar. I ended up only using 1 1/4 c oil and it was getting so thick I had to stop. The first time I was pouring the oil in by hand...very, VERY slowly, talk about a tired arm! The second time I got smart and poked a hole through a paper cup with a toothpick and let the oil slowly drizzel out of that (I took out the little thingy on top of the blender lid and set the cup up there :) Very good will make again!
More Tips: 1. You *must* have all ingredients at room temperature; 2. Use an immersion (stick-type) blender, if you have one. I have used my trusty Bamix since 1986 with outstanding results on this and many other recipes; 3. Be sure that the egg is the first ingredient added, followed by the vinegar (I use 1/2 red cider vinegar & 1/2 lemon juice), seasoning (I use 1/4 tsp to 1 C canola oil and the same amount of dry mustard as my mustard of choice), into a tall, narrow plastic cup (Halve the recipe for this method). Hold the blade on the bottom of the cup, turn it on to the fast speed for 20 seconds then move up & down slowly until completely mixed. Takes less than a minute, start to finish for delicious, homemade mayo! Other tips: Add finely minced chives, basil, cilantro, etc., or paprika or other spices ~ be inventive and enjoy. * * * This recipe tastes even better than Best Foods/Hellmann's mayo. We never have to buy pricey mayo. Once you try it, you may feel the same.
Makes an excellent mayo. Couple tips: Lemon juice for part of the vinegar really brightens it up. Also, if you have a stick blender, put everything into a wide mouth jar, place your stick blender all the way to the bottom and turn it on. Wait for a second until it starts to emulsify at the bottom and then slowly pull the blender towards the top. By the time you get there, you'll have mayo right in the jar that you'll keep it in! No more cleaning out a blender or food processor!
I used a dollop of dijon mustard instead of the dry mustard and I used olive oil. If you use the olive oil, make sure it is the very light olive oil or it will be bitter. This worked perfectly in my blender.
Homemade mayo is the best, and I have made it with several different modifications. I use half canola, half EVOO, and have added a Dijon or whole seed type mustard with good results. Chop some dill pickles in the mayo and add a lemon herb spice and you have a great tartar sauce. Also, I do not add oil drop by drop, I simply pour slowly out of the measuring cup which only takes a couple of minutes and have never had trouble with it emulsifying. I never purchase mayo.
This recipe was kind of a pain to make in my blender. Near the end, it got really thick and it was hard to add the oil. Taste-wise, I liked this recipe better than the Home
Made Mayonnaise, which is also on this site. It's thicker and the taste is more clear. I'll make this again, only next time I'll use the food processor. My blender is kind of a puss.
