Home Made Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise for you Recipe


Eggs, vinegar, lemon juice, water, salt, cayenne pepper and extra virgin olive oil.

Blend ingredients

Separate three eggs and put their yolks in a mixing bowl, along with two tablespoons of vinegar, two tablespoons of water and two tablespoons of lemon juice.


Heat the mixture on your stove top at around 150 degrees for one minute. Stir continually for that minute.


Place mixing bowl on the counter and allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes.

Add ingredients for flavor

Add a half tablespoon of cayenne pepper, a half tablespoon of salt and a bit of spicy mustard to the mixture. Then whisk the mixture until the ingredients blend together. Desire a little more kick? Consider splashing a bit more pepper in there next time. Want thicker mayonnaise? reduce the water.

I like to add a little garlic to this for extra flavor.

Olive oil

Slowly add high-quality extra virgin olive oil, teaspoon by teaspoon, perpetually whisking, until your mixture reaches the proper consistency of mayonnaise. This should take up to one and a half cups of olive oil. Remember to fully integrate each teaspoon of olive oil before moving onto the next.

I hope you give this a try because it is worth it.
