My homemade mayo recipe is considered healthy for several reasons. Firstly, it can be made with high-quality, wholesome ingredients such as organic eggs, cold-pressed oils, and fresh herbs, which are all nutrient-dense and contribute to overall health and well-being. Secondly, homemade mayo can be customized to suit individual dietary needs and preferences, such as using a specific type of oil or omitting or adding certain ingredients for flavor or nutritional benefits. Thirdly, this homemade mayonnaise does not contain any preservatives, additives, or artificial flavors found in commercial brands. Additionally, making mayo from scratch allows for complete control over the amount of salt, and other additives, making it a healthier and more natural alternative.

How Do You Make My Mayonnaise?

Step 1. Use an Immersion Blender

This method only works using an immersion blender or stick blender. You will also need a narrow cup that is slightly larger than the head of the immersion blender. The beaker that comes with most immersion blenders works great!

Adding wet ingredients to muffin batter.

Step 2. Room Temperture Egg

It is critical that your egg is at room temperature for the emulsification to happen. You can either leave your egg out on the counter for several hours, or let it soak in a bowl of hot tap water for 5-10 minutes.

Step 3. Add The Ingredients

Add in the white wine vinegar, lemon juice (fresh or from a bottle), mustard powder, garlic powder and salt. 

Step 4. Add the Oil

Gently pour in the oil so you don’t upset the eggs at the bottom. Let the oil sit for a minute or two for all the ingredients to settle at the bottom, with the oil floating to the top..

Step 5. Emulsification

Gently lower your immersion blender into the cup and rest it on the bottom. Turn on the blender to the highest power and hold it steady in the cup. Within 15-20 seconds, the mixture will turn white on the bottom of the beaker. As soon as the mixture is white around the bottom of the cup, begin to gently move the immersion blender up and down to incorporate all of the oil. As soon as all the oil is mixed, turn off the blender. You do not want to over-mix the mayo.

Step 6. Enjoy!

Store your mayo in an air-tight container in the fridge. It will thicken up a little more once it is cooled.
