This homemade mayonnaise recipe was adapted from my mum's recipe that she used since my earliest childhood. She
always made it as one of the main ingredients of her famous potato
salad but it is really very versatile and can be used as a dip for chips, french fries or mixed with tomato sauce and a few spices to be converted into delicious barbecue or braai sauces as we say in South Africa. This mayonnaise is very quick and easy to make and tastes better than any commercially available product I have come across so far.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Mixing time: 5 minutes
Resting time: 0 minutes
Total time needed: 10 minutes
Grade of Difficulty: easy
This is the very basic mayonnaise recipe which will usually be usable immediately and can stay fresh in the fridge for a couple of days.
Place mayonnaise in a jar with a lid and store in fridge.
Take note: This recipe usually works very well but it is important to use fresh eggs. If the consistency of the mixture has not started to thicken after you added 100 ml of oil discard all and start again with fresh ingredients.
