Homemade Olive Oil Mayo: A Creamy, Wholesome Recipe




There's something incredibly satisfying about making your own condiments, and homemade mayonnaise is no exception. With just a few simple ingredients, you can whip up a creamy, flavorful batch of mayo that's free from additives and preservatives. In this recipe, we'll show you how to make homemade mayo using olive oil, perfect for sandwiches, salads, and dipping.


Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg (at room temperature)

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (freshly squeezed)

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • Salt, to taste

  • Pepper, to taste


Instructions:


1. Prepare Your Ingredients:


- Make sure the egg is at room temperature as this helps with emulsification. Measure out the other ingredients for easy access.


2. Combine Egg, Mustard, and Lemon Juice:


- In a blender or food processor, add the room-temperature egg, Dijon mustard, and freshly squeezed lemon juice.


3. Blend Until Smooth:


- Start blending at low speed for a few seconds until the ingredients are combined.


4. Slowly Add Olive Oil:


- While the blender or food processor is running, begin adding the extra virgin olive oil very slowly in a steady stream. This should take around 2-3 minutes. The key is to add it gradually to allow for proper emulsification.


5. Watch for Thickening:


- As you add the olive oil, you'll notice the mixture thickening and becoming creamy. Continue to blend until all the oil is incorporated.


6. Season to Taste:


- Once the mayo is creamy and smooth, stop the blender or food processor. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Blend for a few more seconds to ensure the seasonings are evenly distributed.


7. Transfer and Store:


- Transfer your homemade olive oil mayo to a clean, airtight container. Store it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Make sure to label it with the date.


Tips:

  • If your mayo is too thin, you can slowly drizzle in a bit more olive oil while blending to thicken it up.

  • Enjoy the rich, fruity notes of extra virgin olive oil in your mayo for a distinct flavor.


Making your own homemade mayo with olive oil not only allows you to control the ingredients but also results in a fresher, tastier condiment for your culinary creations. Enjoy the creamy goodness of your homemade olive oil mayo on sandwiches, in dressings, or as a dipping sauce for a variety of dishes. Say goodbye to store-bought mayo and embrace the joy of crafting your own!
