Making your own mayonnaise is a very easy thing to do and for those who love the freshest ingredients in their meals it’s a must. This is a great recipe for anyone looking to get close to the basic mayo used to make Bánh mì sandwiches.
Makes 2.5 cups
- 4 egg yolks
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice
- 4 tsp rice vinegar
- 2 cups cooking oil
- Put the egg yolks, salt, lemon juice, and vinegar in the food processor. Pulse 4 or 5 times to combine well.
- Run the machine and pour the oil through the feed tube in a thin (less than ¼ inch wide), steady stream until completely incorporated. The mixture will thicken as the oil gets worked in, and the sputtering will diminish by the time the mixture becomes super thick and creamy. It should take 2 to 3 minutes to add the oil.
Refrigerate immediately. This mayo will last up to a week in the refrigerator.
