Mayonnaise is a thick creamy dressing, often formulated by the mixture of egg yolk, lemon or vinegar, vegetable oil and other spices and herbs.
Mayonnaise is used in combination and consumption with bread, sandwich, hamburger snacks etc.

Sincerely speaking mayonnaise is my favourite, I prefer mayonnaise to food butter, because of its yummy tasty taste it gives, most of us uses mayonnaise but have you thought about how its been produced?

To make Mayonnaise with a Hand Whisk(by hand)
Mayonnaise can  be made with a common hand whisk, but instead of using the whole egg, only the yolk will be used here.


You’ll need
– 1 egg Yolk
– 120ml Vegetable oil
– 2 tablespoons Vinegar or lemon juice
– Salt to taste

1. Wash and crack the egg and carefully separate the yolk from the white and place in a wide bowl.

Add the salt to the egg yolk and mix together until well combined.

2. Using a teaspoon, gradually add the oil (drop by drop), stirring continuously as you do so.

The Mayonnaise will begin to thicken as you add the oil. If the mixture becomes too thick, add a few drops of the vinegar/lemon juice to thin it down a bit, and continue stirring until smooth and you’ve reached your desired thickness.

3. Finally, add the remaining vinegar/lemon juice and mix well until well incorporated and smooth.

STORAGE: Store in the refrigerator
Homemade Mayonnaise should be stored in the refrigerator!!
