How to make Mayonnaise in the Blender

Sumber : eHow

Things you'll need:

  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 ½ to 2 tbls. Lemon juice or white wine vinegar, divided
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1 cup canola oil or extra virgin olive oil (see tips below)


    • 1
       Frothy, well-blended egg, seasinongs and lemon juice

    • Blend eggs, 1 ½ tbls. lemon juice, salt and pepper in blender 30 seconds or until frothy and well-blended.
    • 2
      slowly pour the oil into the blender

    • With the blender running, slowly pour in oil, making a very small stream - pour slowly, taking 2 to 3 minutes. Egg mixture will begin to thicken after half the oil has been absorbed. Stir in remaining ½ tbls. Lemon juice for more lemon flavor, if desired.
    • 3
      Store tightly covered in refrigerator

    • Use immediately or if necessary can be stored in the refrigerator, covered tightly, for up to seven days. Makes about 1/2 cup of delicious, light mayonnaise

Tips & Warnings

  • For thicker mayonnaise, slowly add only ¼ cup additional oil.
  • When using the mayo in mildly flavored dishes, use canola oil. For dishes with more robust flavors, use extra virgin olive oil or a mixture of both oils.
  • Add flavorings like minced garlic, chopped fresh herbs, orange or lime juice in place of the lemon juice, or maybe you like a little curry or mustard to taste.
  • The secret is adding the oil slowly. If the oil is added too quickly, the mixture will curdle. To fix curdled mayo, add a new egg to a clean blender container and slowly pour the curdled mixture into the egg while the blender is running slowly.
