350 ml

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon english mustard
1/2 lemon, juiced
or 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar or cider vinegar
300ml light rapeseed oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Put the egg yolks, mustard and lemon juice or wine (or cider) vinegar into a bowl and whisk together for 1 minute. Now slowly add the oil, drop by drop to begin with, then in a thin, steady stream, whisking constantly, until the mixture is emulsified and thick. (Or you can make the mayonnaise in a blender or food processor, blending the egg yolks, mustard and lemon juice or vinegar for 1 minute and then adding the oil in a thin, steady stream through the funnel with the motor running.)
  2. Season the mayonnaise with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate until needed. It will keep in the fridge for a couple of days.

Herb mayonnaise

  • Add 3–4 tbsp chopped herbs to the finished mayonnaise. Dill, tarragon and parsley are good options with fish.

Spicy anchovy mayonnaise

  • Put 2 egg yolks, a pinch of saffron strands, 2 chopped garlic cloves, 1 finely chopped deseeded chilli, 4 salted anchovies in oil and the juice of ½ lemon into a blender or small food processor and blitz for 1 minute. With the motor running, slowly add 400ml olive oil through the funnel. Season the mayonnaise, scrape into a bowl, cover and refrigerate as above.
