Hey guys. I thought I'd post a quick mayonnaise recipe in case some of you want to put some on a fresh sandwich, or in case you may want to lightly coat a piece of fish before grilling :)
Mayonnaise (1 cup)
1 egg yolk
1/4 oz wine vinegar (white wine vinegar)
1 tsp dry mustard
1 cup veg oil (veg, canola, or even olive)
1/2 ea lemon, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
worcestershire to taste
tabasco to taste
(I like to put a small pinch of cayenne in too)
combine egg yolk, (maybe a T of water), vinegar and mustard in a bowl.
Whisk until mixture is slightly foamy.
Gradually add the oil in a thin stream, constantly beating with a whisk
until the oil is incorporated and the mayonnaise is thick.
Adjust with salt, pepper, lemon juice (worcestershire, tabasco and cayenne) to taste.
*Dont keep fresh mayo around because of the danger of using fresh egg yolks.*
*Use pasteurized egg yolks if you intend on keeping it*
Hint: Once you get the emulsion going and the mayonnaise is thick adjust seasoning while tasting until you find the flavor that works for you. People like different mayonnaise flavors.
If you want hints, tricks, tips or the science of emulsions just ask.
