You know how people say there is power in positive thinking…? What many fail to also mention is the crippling nature of negative thinking. After researching how to make mayonnaise to death and some fantastic advice from fellow bloggers and friends…it flopped.
There wasn’t actually anything wrong with the recipe and research as the emulsion worked and it did look like mayo, but when I tried to adjust the seasoning so that it would taste like mayo, I went a little overboard with the lemon juice and once it split, there really was no going back. So now I just have to get back on the horse and try again.
But while I was gathering the courage to actually make the mayo, I decided to turn my procrastination into something productive and tackled making lemon curd for the first time. Well, I had to find something to do with those lovely fresh, free range eggs I had bought to make mayo… . I found this lovely recipe and it was a good way of using up the big bag of lemons my mom had passed on to me after being given some from a neighbour’s tree.
