Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe

 1 Large Egg Yolk
 1 tsp Mustard
 1 tsp Fine Salt
 ½ tsp Ground Black Pepper
 ½ tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
 1 tsp Lemon Juice
 ¾ cup Olive Oil

Place the egg yolk in a shallow bowl and whisk until it lightens to a lovely lemon yellow.


Whisk in the mustard, salt, pepper, vinegar and lemon juice.

And now for the technical part:

You must drizzle the oil into the egg mixture extremely slowly, whisking it all the while. To be exact on just how slow, set a timer for four minutes. During that 4-minute period, you should whisk in no more than ¼ cup of the oil. After that initial period, you can drizzle in the remaining ½ cup a bit faster (about 2 minutes), whisking steadily the entire time.


Use immediately or store covered in the refrigerator for up to two days.
