Homemade Mayonnaise

I printed this recipe on 04/21/2011 from here!

It has taken me over a year to actually try this. I have wanted to for so long and finally got up the courage to do it.

I used my Kitchen Aid (with the wire whips) to do this. Worked like a charm!

2 egg yolks
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp honey
3 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups olive oil
(All ingredients must be at room temperature)

In mixer, blend yolks, salt, honey and mustard with wire whips. Combine lemon juie and vinegar in a separate bowl and add half into the yolk mixture. Place oil in a container with a pour spout that can easily be controlled. Start mixer on meduim and add a slow stream of oil until the liquid seems to thicken and lighten a bit. Then, increase the oil flow to a faster stream. Once half of the oil is in, add the rest of the lemon juice mixture. Continue adding oil until all of it is incorporated.

It felt good using this mayonnaise instead of the store-bought kind. I knew exactly what was in it and they were quality ingredients. I used the mayo for tuna sandwiches and coleslaw and both were a hit!
