Ingredients
  1. 250ml oil – sunflower, corn oil or a cooking olive oil
  2. 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  3. 4 egg yolks
  4. 1 teaspoon mustard – I use Dijon mustard
  5. ½ lemon juiced – use to taste
  6. salt and pepper to taste
  7. sugar to taste
Instructions
  1. Place the egg yolks, vinegar and mustard in a mixing jug. I find that a tall jug works best as you get less mess then a bowl when mixing.
  2. Using a stick blender, give it a good whisk. The gradually add the oil in about 3 or 4 batches whisking well between each addition of the oil. The sauce will thicken nicely.
  3. Once all the oil has been added, taste the mayo for a seasoning check adding salt and pepper. I like to add a little sugar or xylitol , no more then a ½ teaspoon. This really finishes the mayo off and balances the flavour, however you can leave it out if you desire.
  4. If the mayo becomes too thick simply add a little water to loosen it.
  5. Transfer it to a jar or container and store in the fridge. It will keep for about 2 weeks.
  6. To change the flavour you can add capers and olives, or sundries tomatoes. The possibilities are endless.
