Home Mayonnaise

I got real sick of sitting at my desk doing readings, and it wasn’t long before I found myself thinking about food again. Story of my life. Then, I started thinking about making mayonnaise. I was craving some egg mayo that day but didn’t have any mayo, so why not make my own?

This was so easy to do, I’m never looking back at store-bought mayo again.

  1. In a DRY bowl with a whisk, beat a single egg yolk till it’s creamy and pale yellow.
  2. Then beat in a small amount of oil (any will do: vegetable, olive, rapeseed, go crazy experimenting) until the mixture starts resembling mayonnaise.
  3. At this point, you can add oil at a steady pace till you have the desired amount.
  4. Flavour and season with lemon juice/white vinegar, mustard, salt and white pepper powder. Dilute with drops of water if necessary.
  5. Bottle it up and eat potato salad and egg mayo non-stop till there’s no more. Then, repeat from step 1.

I don’t fancy myself a writer or anything too serious when it comes to the industry of writing, but just last week Something Human, an international curator-collective approached me for an entry on their website. I thought maybe I’d share it here.
