The recipe emphasizes attention to detail: ensure the bowl is dry, stir in one direction, and follow the steps in order. Using fresh home eggs is recommended for a better color. Commercial mayonnaise is criticized for being synthetic and lacking flavor. The recipe involves boiling eggs, mashing yolks with salt, adding mustard, sugar, lemon juice, and gradually incorporating sunflower oil until reaching the desired consistency. If the mayonnaise splits, continue stirring and adding oil, possibly incorporating an additional raw egg yolk. Enjoy your homemade mayonnaise!

  • Boil two eggs (hard-boiled). Mash the yolks very well with a fork, adding salt (to taste) afterward.
  • Add a teaspoon of classic mustard and a teaspoon of sugar (or even less), then continue mixing. Once the ingredients are very well blended, add lemon juice (to taste) and the oil, little by little, while continuously stirring. To mix you can also use a whisk.
  • Towards the end, add a raw egg yolk and continue adding oil until you are satisfied with the consistency and quantity. In case the mayonnaise splits, don't worry! Keep stirring in the same direction at a brisk pace, and you can even add another raw egg yolk if needed. Enjoy your meal!


And there you have it, your homemade mayonnaise recipe! Remember, the secret ingredient is always a dash of love and a sprinkle of patience. So go ahead, whip up a batch, and let your taste buds dance with joy! Enjoy the creamy goodness and happy cooking!
