What do I do when I'm stuck at home? I cook and bake. Cleaning? Bah. That can wait.
The kids wanted sandwiches for lunch. The Girl asked if we had any mayonnaise or Miracle Whip for her ham & cheese. We had neither. But! I can make mayonnaise.
This is a very simple mayo recipe. You could fancy it up quite easily by adding other spices, different mustard, a little vinegar (or fancy vinegar even!), olive oil. Possibilities abound. I used my food processor, but you could use your blender or immersion blender, or if you are very industrious, a hand whisk.
1 egg (or pasteurized egg - this is raw egg, be aware)
2 tsp mustard
1 Tbsp lemon juice
200 ml (a little more than 3/4 c) canola oil
Put the egg, mustard, and lemon juice in the food processor. Turn on, and drizzle in oil. Mix until the mayonnaise is emulsified and spreadable. Store in a jar in the fridge, but not for more than a week, since the egg is raw.
Enjoy on sandwiches or how you would regular store bought mayo.
