It took 5 tries and lots of wasted eggs, lemon juice and oil, but I
finally made homemade mayonnaisee.
I used to do it all the time, and I don't remember it being this hard!!!!
Several times it was coming out nearly perfect and then "broke" as
they say in the mayonnaise jargon.
So, why would I waste all that time and all those ingredients trying
to make mayonnaise? Because I am allergic to the kind you buy in the
store. I am allergic to soy and can't find any without it, and I
wanted to make deviled eggs and potato salad, and to be able to
occasionally. Picnics, family gatherings, etc.
I've been trying for months, off and on, and today I tried and failed.
Was about to give up forever, not understanding why it wasn't
working, when I found another recipe, not the one I'd used first that
had failed me, that said, "follow these directions perfectly and
measure perfectly or it won't work." I did; it didn't. But this was
an "easy" recipe and voila, mayonnaise!
And deviled eggs. And now I am making potato salad! YAY.
All fattening foods, but I won't be making a habit of it--too many
dirty dishes, too much wasted time!
Good thing I am flexible enough to pat my own back, 'cause prolly no
one else cares, LOL!
