Last week I was rummaging through the pantry trying to find some mayonnaise,
with no luck. It seems I rarely find the time to make it to the grocery store these days. I figured, I have eggs I'll just make some.
Now that spring has sprung, well kind of...you should be see an increase in egg production in your coops. With that increase in eggs lets make something quick, easy and yummy.
2 Eggs yolks
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon powdered mustard
1/8 teaspoon sugar
pinch cayenne pepper
4 to 5 teaspoons vinegar
1-1/2 cups salad oil
4 teaspoons warm water
Begin by separating 2 farm fresh egg yolks, you can use store bought eggs but you might as well pick up a jar of mayo, just kidding. Combine egg yolks, salt, mustard, sugar, pepper, and 1 teaspoon vinegar, beat on medium speed with a mixer until very thick and pale yellow. Add about 1/4 cup oil very slowly while mixing. Add in 1 teaspoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of water. Drizzle in another 1/4 cup oil while vigorously mixing and another teaspoon of vinegar and water. Add in 1/2 cup oil in a very fine steady stream mixing constantly, then add in remaining vinegar and water.
The farm fresh eggs make a pretty yellow mayonnaise and tasty too. You can spice it up with dill, Thyme or turn up the heat with the cayenne pepper.
Do not keep longer than 1 week.
