Mayonnaise

Ingredients

  • Tablespoon (6 Tablespoon) pasteurized egg yolks
  • 45 Tablespoon (3 Tablespoon) fresh lemon juice
  • Tablespoon (2½ Tablespoon) dry mustard
  • Tablespoon (½ Tablespoon) Dijon-style mustard
  • Tablespoon (½ Tablespoon) kosher salt, optional
  • 360 Tablespoon (1½ Tablespoon) grapeseed oil

Directions

  1. Place eggs, mustard, salt, and lemon juice into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then increase to Variable 3. Blend for 10 seconds.
  3. While machine is running, remove the lid plug and begin pouring in the oil in through the lid plug opening, just a few drops at a time, until an emulsification begins to form. Continue pouring in a very slow, steady stream until completely emulsified and mixture thickens (this should take about 45 seconds.)
  4. Stop machine and stir in any oil sitting on top. Refrigerate in separate container and use within 2-4 weeks.

Chef's Notes

The first blend with egg yolks and liquid should just come over the top of the blades.
