If you ever run out of mayonnaise (who are you people) I am here to help you by sharing my recipe for how to make southern homemade mayonnaise. Running low on beloved mayo, especially Duke's, is no joke around our household. A trip to Costco was suppose to put us back on track but of course I steered away from the 5 lb container (only a slight exaggeration). The very next day what does my daughter want for lunch? A sandwich with mayonnaise. Oops! "Never fear," I said "If your Nanny (aka my mama) can make homemade mayonnaise, we can too!
Yields about a Pint
1 Large Egg (room temperature)
1 1/2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar or White Vinegar
1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp Granulated garlic
Kosher salt to taste
Optional ingredients to add or omit:
Dijon Mustard (to taste)
1. Attach the whisk on your food processor.
2. Add the egg, vinegar, pinch of salt, Dijon mustard and garlic.
3. Turn the food processor on low for about 5-6 seconds, next add the olive oil slowly.
3. Keep blending for about 25-30 seconds.
Your homemade mayonnaise will look and taste so delicious, but more importantly it is so much better for you than store bought. Keep your homemade batch in your refrigerator for up to a month in an air tight container.
