My first attempt at making mayonnaise and the result is great except for a tweak next time with regard to the oil I used. A combination of olive and omega oils is very healthy but the flavours are a little overpowering.  A gentler oil like a plain organic cold pressed sunflower seed oil will be more suitable with possibly a dash of olive oil for just a little excitement.

The process, using a blender, is easy enough and without fuss. This mayo took me less then 10 minutes to make.


Home-made mayonnaise



  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1teaspoon mustard powder
  • 3teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon hot water (optional)


  • Blender
  • Spoon
  • Container to store mayonnaise

How to:

Whizz 1/4 of the vegetable oil, egg,  apple cider vinegar,  mustard powder, salt in the blender for a few seconds. Slowly drizzle the remaining 3/4 cup of vegetable oil into the mixture (through the top hatch) while the blender is running. Finally blend in the hot water. The last is something I will probably omit next time for a firmer consistency.
