Cooking Classics

The Technique

Homemade Mayonnaise

Freshly prepared mayonnaise is a ritzy way to enjoy your favorite sandwichesappetizers, sauces & salad dressings. It’s also the ideal foundation for southern classics such as chicken salad or pimiento cheese. The simple emulsion in which oil is suspended in an egg yolk is seasoned effortlessly with a few basic essentials. The task generally takes anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes with a traditional whisk, however a batter bowl with a rubber ring around the base works well as it holds the bowl steady so you can add the oil in a steady stream with one hand & blend the mixture with the other using a mixer. You can expect one egg yolk to hold up to 3/4 cup of oil by whisking vigorously & continually until the mixture is very thick. Droplets of water are added during the process to thin the condiment until all of the oil has taken into the mayonnaise. It’s important to start with oil that is as fresh as possible as it will provide the flavor foundation of the finished mixture. Canola & vegetable oil work well but olive, grape-seed, safflower or peanut oil may be used too which would create slight flavor differences. Learn how to make 3-Minute Homemade Mayonnaise in your very own kitchen.

The Raw Egg Yolk

There is a risk consuming raw eggs as they can cause food-borne illness. Start by using the freshest, cleanest eggs possible that have been properly refrigerated. The safest eggs to use are pasteurized eggs in the shell which have been treated
to kill any traces of salmonella bacteria that may be present.
