Hello and welcome to Rada’s Test Kitchen. My name is Blake, and today we’ll be making mayonnaise from sratch. We’re gong to use egg yolks, citric acid or lime juice, light oil, salt to bring out the flavor and water as needed.

We’ll start with the fresh egg yolks. We have in our bowl four egg yolks. We’ll take the Handi-Stir and whisk these yolks up a little bit, get some air in them. Take the lime, half it, put just a little citric acid in there. Now we’ll add some corn oil. The key to this, to not allow this to break, is to not add more oil than there is egg otherwise it will break. Fully incorporate it. You’ll see it thickening up.

As it starts to thicken, you can add some water that will thin it and lighten the color to make it look more like mayonnaise. So the final touches to the mayonnaise is to season it and make sure it tastes right. If you use farm-fresh eggs, it will be more of a yellow mayonnaise. To get the light color you’re used to, use more water and lime juice. This one is a little yellow with a nice flavor and texture to it.

Hopefully you give this a shot and you’ll never have to buy mayonnaise again.
