If you’ve only ever eaten store-bought mayonnaise, then we really encourage you to try this Homemade Basic Mayonnaise recipe. It’s super easy to make at home, and will leave you wondering why you ever opted for store-bought in the past. Yes, some people are concerned about eating raw egg. In that case we encourage you to stop eating mayonnaise, because that’s just what it is.
In a food processor, or in a container with a stick blender, process the egg yolks, salt, pepper and vinegar. Process for around 10-15 seconds, or until well combined.
With the processor still running (pour through the top for food processor), add the cup of olive oil. Pour slowly! Continue to process until your mix is thick and creamy.
If you find the mixture is too thick, add some hot water to thin it down. There you have it, around 1 and 1/4 cup of mayo!
