two minute stick blender mayonnaise
December 24, 2012 in Sauces + Dressings
Here is something simple for you to try this holiday – a TWO MINUTE stick blender mayonnaise. Most foodies know this fool proof method but I am surprised at how many people still use the old drop-for-drop-oil-method. The big secret behind this recipe is to add the ingredients in a narrow vessel/container in the right order… egg, water, vinegar, oil – this is critical. Let the ingredients settle for a minute – then put your stick blender carefully on top of the egg yolk – the blender must touch the bottom of the container … then only then start blending until the mayonnaise starts emulsifying. S-L-O-W-L-Y pull the stick blender up to complete the emulsification process.
Here is a video clip to show you how easy it is to make your very own homemade mayonnaise. Make a cupful or a bucketful, its fresh and fantastic. Its creamy and dreamy and perfect with just about anything…salads + potatoes + dips.
