close up of homemade mayonnaise in front of lemons and dijon mustard
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice approx. half of a large lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 2/3 cup mild neutral oil such as avocado or light olive oil can also use macadamia nut oil, walnut oil or other high-quality mild oil
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  1. Begin by placing all ingredients in a wide mouth mason jar of other tall, cylinder shaped container. 

    Make sure the white pepper is not clumped up and let the ingredients sit for a minute or two until the oil rises to the top.

  2. Place the immersion blender in so that it sits firmly on the bottom of the container. 

    Set it to the highest speed and turn on. Do NOT pull the blender up or out, just allow it to sit at the bottom of the container. The mayo will start to emulsify and begin creeping up the sides.

  3. Once most of the mixture has emulsified and looks like mayo (less than a minute!), you can begin to move the immersion blender up and down to incorporate any oil that is sitting on the top.

    You should have thick, creamy mayo!

    Place in a container with a lid, keep refrigerated and use up within one week. Enjoy!
