How to make mayonnaise and prepare it at home
Separate the egg whites from the yolks, and save the whites to use for something else.
Put the yolks in a special bowl, and then put the fresh lemon juice with the egg yolks.
Mix the yolks with lemon juice well using a hand mixer or you can use an electric mixer (food processor), which is better, to ensure that the ingredients are mixed well at high speeds.
Start pouring the oil gradually and in slow-motion, it is preferable to put a little oil in and start mixing again, until the cup of oil is completely finished.
If you are using an electric mixer, keep pouring the oil slowly until the mixture begins to thicken.
If the mixture becomes thick, it can be diluted by adding 1 teaspoon of pure water.
Add salt to the mixture, and mix it well afterward.
Place the container in the refrigerator closed for 3 days before using it.
To add a delicious flavor to mayonnaise, add a little crushed garlic or finely chopped garlic, as well as ½ teaspoon of mustard.
Make sure the two eggs you use are below room temperature, if you use cold eggs, the mixture won’t get too thick.
At the stage of adding oil, you must add the oil, forming a thin thread while pouring it.
Always use natural lemon juice.
