    Default Homemade Mayonnaise


    The first thing I made with my snazzy jazzy new immersion blender is
    mayonnaise. Dang, homemade mayo is the best.

    Recipe and photos on my blog if you are interested.

    I have no idea why, but I have much better luck making mayo in the food
    processor (or even by hand) than I do with the immersion blender.

    The stuff is so fat-laden that I only make it once or twice a year, and
    that's usually for BLTs in the summer.

    Do you have a specific planned use for the mayo?

    Lovely! Do you hang the blender, or does it have a rack or something?
    The one thing I disliked about the Kitchenaid one I had (that the kid
    broke by being too rough making smoothies with it) was there was no
    place to put it besides in the drawer.

    I clicked over, and I LOVE the tasting dishes you got at Pier 1. Not
    sure how I missed that post.

    It sits in the corner behind the mixer. The attachments are tucked
    away in the cupboard right beneath it.

    Thank you, I couldn't resist them. I decided that they'd be good for
    mis en place also. They are getting a lot of use.

    Are you saying that mayonnaise made with an immersion blender is fattier
    than others? Or just that in general it is fattier than things you approve
    of? How can you do without one of the master sauces? I really do want to
    know.

    A lot of folks here think that making it is too much trouble, and they

    Hers is not "one of the master sauces," as it is jizzed up with egg
    whites.

    I mean I rarely make homemade mayonnaise (or consume mayonnaise at all)
    because of its high fat content. Doesn't mean I don't love the stuff. I'm
    pretty sure that the fat content of mayonnaise made using a whisk is
    identical to that made using an immersion blender.

    When we got our 1st food processor we started making our own Mayo.
    This would guarantee that it had the type of oil (corn) that would
    not cause allergy problems with one of the kids. Commercial Mayo
    usually says something like, "may contain one or more of the
    following" oils. But when we discovered there was not allergy to
    corn, we bought a jar of Mayo. The kids went, yuk! So, even today,
    as empty nesters, we still make our own Mayo. We use the original
    recipe that came with our 1st Sunbeam processor. Here's the recipe:
    In processor put
    1 egg
    1 Tablespoon white vinegar
    1 Tablespoon lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon each salt, sugar, and dry mustard
    Start processor and slowly add 1 1/4 canola oil and run until creamy
    Spatula down sides and run again to mix. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Lasts a
    long time in a covered jar in the fridge although some might say a
    week. But I know we have had a jar in the fridge for a month or more.

    I gather it's a snap.

    You remind me... I just got a French cookbook for young kids that
    was listed on craigslist. Among other things, they are (or were
    om the 60s) learning to make mayonnaise, fresh pasta and various
    other things that most adults don't make in other countries. I
    thought that was very interesting.

    Who in this day and age is going to make a batch of mayonnaise just so
    they can spread a teaspoon's worth on a sandwich? The blender method
    is no trouble, but nobody in their right mind wants to waste decent
    food either. I don't make mayonnaise, but I'll make aioli to have as
    a side with dinner and then as salad dressing the following day.
    Usually it accompanies salmon. Salmon as the main attraction on the
    plate, then leftovers become salmon pasta salad the following day. I
    use up all the *small* batch I made before it spoils and there's
    nothing left to throw out.

    Warning! Slight thread drift.

    It seems to me like there's a lot of similarities between the
    ingredients for mayonnaise and those for Hollandaise Sauce. They both
    have egg (or just the yolk), oil (or melted butter) and liquid (often
    lemon juice). Both are then emulsified. Would a stick blender work for
    making Hollandaise without the drizzling-melted-butter step?

    Egg WHITE does NOT belong in mayo, PERIOD. Vinegar doesn't either for
    that matter, but putting egg whites in is disgusting.

    I'm just guessing, but I bet it would if the egg YOLK and lemon juice
    were warm enough.

    That would be an interesting experiment. I think I'll try it later

    I used to make my own mayo, first in a blender and then with a hand
    blender - it's fun! My run-in with the old gypsy lady caused her to cast
    her evil eye and now mayonnaise will not set up for me. I guess as far
    as gypsy curses goes, it could have been worse.
