Recipe's preparation

  1. Put all the ingredients except the oil in the TMX Bowl
    Put the MC in place
    Set speed at 9
    Pour the oil on the lid and it will dribble in
    When about half of oil is in lift the MC and check. If it is starting to cling to the sides you can add the oil faster.
    The more oil you add the thicker it will get. So you decide. Stick the spatula in and see how thick it is as you go.

    This keeps well in the fridge. You can add flavours such as garlic, blue cheese or tomato paste. Add chopped pickles. It is a great basic for other dressings.

    Due to a recent article regarding salmonnila in mayonnaise I did some research and found two important points to avoid this. First is that the acid content from lemon juice or vinegar needs to be a minimum 1 Tablespoon. That also assums big eggs so yes small eggs the qty of vinegar could be less. The second item which was a surprise to me was that the mayonnaise should NOT be stored in the fridge for 48 to 72 hours. It should remain at 22C or above. The document is found at //onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1046/j.1365-2672.1999.00473.x/pdf

    I found this information in several places but this one was the best.

    I used the recipe using two eggs. However, I still only used 250mls of oil (instead of 500mls). It still came out thick. I used 40g of vinegar but next time I will use maybe 30-35g. It was very easy and yummy!

    I have heard that some are still having problems with making mayonnaise. Here are some tips;

    Always use more than 1 egg as the basis. Adjust the vinegar/lemon juice after the mayonnaise has started to thicken. To make it very thick add more oil or add a slice of white bread (crust removed) before adding the oil. More vinegar thinner mayonnaise. More oil thicker mayonnaise.
