Mayonnaise, easy mayonnaise, 1 min mayonaise, home made mayonnaise, easy mayonaise, flop proof mayonaise

Here is something simple for you to try this Christmas – a TWO MINUTE stick blender mayonnaise. Most foodies know this fool proof method but I am surprised at how many people still use the old drop-for-drop-oil-method.  The big secret behind this recipe is to add the ingredients in a narrow vessel/container in the right order…  egg + oil – this is critical. Let the ingredients settle  for a minute – then put your stick blender carefully on top of the egg yolk – the blender must touch the bottom of the container … then only then start blending until the mayonnaise starts emulsifying. S-L-O-W-L-Y pull the stick blender up to complete the emulsification process.

Here is a video clip to show you how easy it is to make your very own homemade mayonnaise.  Make a cupful or a bucketful, its fresh and fantastic. Its creamy and dreamy and perfect with just about anything…salads + potatoes + dips.

Sending you love, blessings and best wishes from Dublin, Ireland.  May you have an enchanting, carefree and fabulous Christmas.

  1. From Kim Maxwell:

    Hey Anel I’ve tried unsuccessfully to post this message on your blog on the stick-blender mayo Dec 2012 entry…. Keeps rejecting it.

    But wanted to let you know what happened. Feel free to insert this on the post on my behalf if is suits. Seeya somewhere foodie-ish soon I’m sure. Kim

    Hey Anel My husband (bless him) tried your flop-proof mayo last night while I was at pilates. And managed to flop 2 batches….
    Looked very sheepish on my return as he’d watched me make it multiple times and is a competent cook. Turned out he added ALL ingredients including lemon juice in one go. No wonder it curdled…
    Third time lucky it was great! We added some mashed anchovies and it made a delicious Caesar salad dressing.

    Thanks for popping in Kim

  2. Hallo,

    Ek wil net graag weet ek het ‘n 2 jarige seuntjie en mens lees altyd hoe gevaarlik rou eier is. Kan ek die mayonaise vir hom ook gee?

    Dankie en groete
