Mayonnaise Recipes

Tasty, Quick and Easy Mediterranean Sauces

Mayonnaise recipes are really easy and economical to make, and the difference in taste and quality makes it really worthwhile to do it yourself at home. It's simple and quick to adapt regular Mayo and make it into Alioli (garlic), Marie Rose or Sauce Tartare: all classic and authentic Mediterranean sauces. Just follow Pam's step-by-step instructions or watch her Video slide show below.
If you like a really serious version you can use olive oil, but we find that a little strong for our taste. It's a question of preference.

  • 1/2 pint/290 ml. Of good vegetable oil, or 50/50 with olive oil
  • 2 Fresh egg yolks
  • 1 Tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 a Tsp. Of English mustard 
  • 1/2 a Tsp. salt
  • 2 Tsp. White wine vinegar.
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Watch Pam's Video Slide Show and then read on for the Method.

  1. First put your egg yolks, mustard and salt into a glass bowl and mix well.
  2. Then, holding the oil in one hand and an electric stick blender or hand whisk in the other add a couple of drops of oil and whisk them in - making sure that every drop gets whisked and blended in properly.
  3. Add some more oil - drop-by-drop until the mixture thickens.
  4. Now add the vinegar to thin it down a bit, and start pouring in the oil in a thin stream - whisking all the while, until all the oil is incorporated.
  5. Taste the Mayonnaise and adjust for seasoning.
  6. If the mixture is too thick for you - add a tablespoon of boiling water, until you acheive the desired consistency. That's it - fresh homemade Mayonnaise- quick - easy and great value.

Take 4 ozs of your fresh Mayonnaise and mix it with - two teaspoons each of chopped: capers, gherkins and shallots. That's it - great with fried fish.
