    Minorcan Mayonnaise

    Source of Recipe

    "The Southerner's Cookbook: Recipes, Wisdom, and Stories"

    Recipe Introduction

    "Chef Baker's mayonnaise is slightly more lemony than most standard homemade recipes, likely a vestige of its Mediterranean origin."

    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 2 egg yolks
    ◦ Juice of lemon
    ◦ 1 clove garlic, minced
    ◦ cup good olive oil
    ◦ cup vegetable oil
    ◦ Kosher salt or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


    Combine the egg yolks, lemon juice, and garlic in a medium bowl. Using a whisk, beat until the yolks are fluffy and start to stiffen, about 1 minute.

    Combine the olive and vegetable oils and add to the bowl a few drops at a time at first to homogenize the yolk mixture, whisking constantly, then in a slow steady stream, again whisking constantly, until the oils are completely homogenized into the yolk mixture (about 8 minutes).

    If the mixture starts becoming too thick, it may be thinned with a drop or two of water. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 3 days.

    Makes 1 generous cup
