Some people say mayonnaise is the devil of all condiments. I like to think of it as a necessary evil.
Seriously though… a tuna wrap is nothing without a little mayo. A club sandwich? Not a club without the mayo…
I recently decided to give up store-bought mayonnaise because 1) I don’t use it often enough and 2) I don’t think anything in your fridge should live for months at a time and never change.
Here’s a quick video with super cheesy music to show you how easy it is to make mayo.
Here’s what you need (I’m leaving the method to the video)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 cup of vegetable oil
- Pinch of salt
*Note: The dijon mustard can be replaced by 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar for different flavours. I usually like to do 3/4 cup of vegetable oil and 1/4 cup of olive oil for a little bit more of an olive taste.
Finally, you can add anything to this recipe. Sundried tomatos, curry powder, sriracha… Explore the possibilities!
