I am not the biggest fan of mayo. I personally only use it when I make tuna fish,or salads such as macaroni or potato. That's it. I still wanted to give it a shot.
My Mom called to chat this AM and when I told her that I was going to make my own mayo,she exclaimed ," Memere used to make her own mayonnaise!" (that's my grandmother). She then told me about all the different things that my Memere used to make,and finished by proclaiming,"That's a lot of work." That's usually what she says to me when I inform her of something new we are trying.
I was not put off,however. After I got off the phone,I went online and looked up various recipes. I settled on a variation of one by Chef Gordon Ramsey.
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon of Dijon Mustard (he called for English Mustard,Dijon is similar. I had to look it up)
1 1/2 cups of canola oil
salt to taste
pepper to taste
lemon juice from half a lemon
Makes about three cups of mayonnaise
Mix egg yolks and Dijon Mustard in a food processor. I set mine on 3 and mixed it well.
