Mayonnaise

Sure there was a time when you could buy it and think "pretty acceptable".

What has happened ? I have now reverted to making my own again, bit of a fad but far preferable to buying stuff that is inedible.

Please don't tell me there is some new directive that has passed me by !

Sandra give the Magic Mayo on my profile a go, using a stick blender you can make it about 2 minutes, no drizzling in needed.....and it is good !

Sandra, I make Yummys' Magic Mayo all the time and it is so easy and quick I would never bother making it any other way now.
I agree that bought mayo is horrible. I used to like Hellmans but all of them just taste of cheap oil to me now. As you say maybe a rule has been passed to change the way it's made.

Mayonnaise

I have never like Hellmans mayo. I did find co-op's own brand fairly acceptable (am not a greta lover of mayo) but i did try some from belguim/holland - i think it was? and that WAS nice.

Just noticed Yummys recipe sounds relatively easy - could you make it in a glass pyrex measuring jug? how much does it make (never made my own before) and how long would it last for?

Magic Mayo

Sam, if you haver a pint glass (dimpled pot even better) just so that your hand blender touches the bottom square on, that will be fine. The idea is not to move it round until you see the base of the mayo go quite pale and start to thicken, then just move the blender up and down to incorporate the oil. I don't ever use olive oil as I find it too strong, Sunflower or Rape seed oil is the best.

Good luck, hope you try it and let us know what you think.

Magic Mayo (again)

Sorry Sam you asked how much it made, about a cup full, well its basically one egg and a small wineglass plus a few teaspoons. but it is so easy to do you can make two lots within 5 mins.
It will keep in the fridge a couple of days, but with the egg I wouldn't keep any longer, that's if it lasts that long !!!

mayo recipe

I haven't got a stick blender so can it be made using a liquidiser or food processor or is the stick blender the secret to making it?

"I haven't got a stick blender so can it be made using a liquidiser or food processor or is the stick blender the secret to making it?"

You could give it a go VE, I think because of the force of the stick blender it draws the oil into the other ingredients though.....but it is worth a try. Let us know how it goes.

mayo without the stick

Thanks for that Yummy, I'll try it without the stick blender and see. I will let you know. I did have one of those stick type blenders once but gave it to my daughter, it made too much mess when I tried to blend soup.

Delouise mayo

Normally make my own when hens lay enough, but one of the Delia team recommended this and it's the only shop one I find OK.
