This is probably one of the simplest recipes I've ever made, and am blown away by how well it stacks up against more traditional recipes that require a year of whisking and a possible split at the end.
Step 1: Throw Your Ingredients Into a Jar
All you need is:
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons of vinegar (or lemon juice)
- 500ml oil (preferably not a strong tasting oil)
- 1 tablespoon of mustard (optional extra but I like my mayo mustardy)
- Smoked salt (or normal salt if you prefer, but I used applewood smoked salt and it's worth the effort)
Step 2: Blend
Using a stick blender, blend from the bottom of the jar upwards.
Once everything is blended through you have your mayonnaise. No hassles, no whisking, and you can make it fresh in under a minute.
