Homemade Mayonnaise with Egg

Homemade Mayonnaise

This recipe was shared to me by Mrs. Irene Cabral, who is more than my neighbour. You’ll notice that she uses all the oil in one go (most recipes call for the oil to be added little by little). Also, she uses both white vinegar and lime juice. The resultant emulsion is fantastic. Follow the recipe verbatim, and you will have the most delicious Homemade Mayonnaise that is not available in any store.

    • Salad oils are basically vegetable oils which have a light or bland taste. These may be extracted from olives, corn, sunflower, safflower, etc. You should use oil based on your like or dislike.
