There is absolutely no need to buy mayonnaise or salad dressings. Sure, the Thermomix makes mayonnaise making easy, but anyone can make it in a food processor too! I make two sorts of mayo; one is a cooked one and the other a raw egg one. I only ever make the raw egg one when I have access to fresh farm eggs. I have a friend who regularly supplies me with happy chook's eggs and I exchange the kindness with soap. (Thanks Michaela) This time, I'll give her a jar of homemade mayonnaise. Egg Mayonnaise 2 large whole eggs, separated 1 Tbsp of Dijon Mustard 2 Tbsp White Balsamic Vinegar (or plain white, or lemon juice) 2 tsp honey ( I use Jarrah) salt & pepper (white) to taste 250ml sunflower oil Place yolks, salt and pepper, honey, mustard and vinegar in processor or Thermomix bowl. Mix on speed 4 for 30 seconds or so. Scrape down. With blades rotating on speed 4, MC in place, slowly pour oil onto lid of Thermomix. If using a food processor, slowly pour oil through spout while processor is working. Add oil steadily over a period of about 5 minutes. Once thickened, taste test for seasoning etc. and add egg whites, mixing for 10 seconds on speed 4. Add 1/4 tsp of Vitamin C powder to help preserve, if desired. Store in jars in the refrigerator. I make double this recipe. I like to make a variety of dressings with this one mayonnaise. 1. Add yoghurt and chopped mint to make a potato salad dressing. 2. Add lemon juice for a Waldorf salad dressing. 3. Add wholegrain mustard and Special Salad Dressing for Dijonnaise. 4. Add anchovies for a Caeser salad dressing. 5. Add some mayonnaise to a creamy chicken casserole sauce for that tangy zing. The possibilities are endless. My cooked mayonnaise recipe can be found here. This is a sweeter mayonnaise and can be used in the following ways: 1. For tasty Tartare Sauce - add chopped capers and gherkins 2. Coleslaw Dressing - add some of the juice from canned pineapple. Add the chopped pineapple to the coleslaw. 3. Use as a potato salad dressing as is. 4. Mix with Special Salad Dressing, 2 tsp curry powder, 1 tsp dry mustard powder to make a Curried Pasta Salad Dressing. Special Salad Dressing This is a dressing I've developed over the years. It's similar to my Lemon & Mustard Dressing, with a few tweaks. 1/2 cup lemon juice & lemon zest 1/4 cup white vinegar 3/4 cup sunflower oil 3 tsp Jarrah honey (to taste) 2 tsp dulse flakes 2 tsp seeded mustard 1/2 tsp lemon herb seasoning 1/4 tsp onion powder 1 tsp lecithin 1/4 tsp turmeric salt & white pepper Blend together and place in a jar or bottle. The turmeric is optional, but I like the yellow colour. The dulse flakes are a dried sea vegetable and add both flavour and nutrition, but are low in sodium. I throw this dressing into a whole variety of dishes to add flavour and tanginess.
