Homemade Mayo

I really missed creamy sauces and dressings on the anti candida diet until I realised how easy it is to make your own mayo.  Here is the recipe I use:

 3 egg yolks
300 ml of sunflower oil
1/4 tsp of mustard powder
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper

The ingredients must be a room temperature.  Put the eggs into a food processor and mix on the lowest setting until creamy.  You then leave the processor running slowly and slowly pour the oil into the eggs.  This is really important or the eggs wont mix.  You are just adding the oil drip by drip.  You will soon hear the mix starting to thicken and it will make a sloshing noise.

If the mix starts to split and is not mixing properly this may be because the ingredients are different temperatures.  Try adding a tablespoon of warm water.

Once all the oil is added you can add the lemon, mustard powder, salt and pepper and give it one last mix.  The mayo will then keep in your fridge for 2 weeks.  You can also added finely chopped garlic to make garlic mayo or even some chili there are so many options to make delicious meals.
