    About this recipe: This is the way that we have made mayonnaise for years and years in my family, before commercial mayonnaise was sold so cheaply. It's always delicious!

    Serves: 16 

    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
    • 175ml vegetable or olive oil
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Ready in:5min 

    1. Combine the egg, garlic, lemon juice and mustard in the container of a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, then blend on low speed while pouring oil into the blender in a fine stream as the mixture emulsifies and thickens.

    I made this following the recipe, but I ended up with a runny mayonnaise. I tried to fix it by adding another egg, but this made it runnier! I then added a lot more oil and it did eventually thicken up. I used a large egg and I think this might have been the problem, but as the recipe doesn't specify the size of egg I couldn't have known this before I made it. So if you try this and it doesn't thicken, add more oil, not more egg! - 23 Jul 2012
