Ingredients
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • 150ml oil (sunflower or olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar or lemon juice
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Get a bowl and put in the egg yolk. With a whisk, beat in the salt, mustard and pepper.
  2. Add the oil, drop by drop. Make sure the oil is absorbed completely before you put in the next drop. You don’t want the mixture to curdle.
  3. After you have added about half of the oil, you can add the oil faster (about a tablespoon at a time). If the mixture curdles, get a new egg yolk and place it in a new, clean bowl. Whisk in the curdled mixture (and keep whisking) and add the rest of the oil drop by drop.
  4. Add a little vinegar to the mixture to soften it, add the remaining oil.
  5. Blend in the rest of the vinegar to taste. You can store the mayonnaise in the fridge in a closed container for up to 2 weeks.

Tip: Add some fresh herbs or garlic for extra flavour!
