Homemade Mayonnaise

Ingredients:
(adapted from Marian Burros recipe from Pure and Simple)
blendermayoingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, or, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
Directions:
Blend egg, mustard, pepper and 1/4 cup oil in blender until smooth. Add the rest of the oil and blend again until well mixed. After blending, take off lid and add lemon juice, mixing well with a spatula. Put lid back on and blend again until mixed. Pour into bowl or Mason jar and refrigerate.
fromtheblender The mixture will not be as thick as the chemically produced store-bought brand, but it will mix nicely with the chicken, and the meat will soak up some of the flavors.
