Homemade Mayonnaise (家居自制蛋黄酱)

INTRODUCTION

I presumed most readers will know what is mayonnaise and there is no need for me to dwell into the details of mayonnaise. But it is always good to have a good and concise definition from Wikipedia:

“Mayonnaise (/ˈmeɪəneɪz/, /ˌmeɪəˈneɪz/ or in AmE also /ˈmæneɪz/, and often abbreviated as mayo /ˈmeɪoʊ/) is a thick, creamy dressing often used as a condiment. It is a stable emulsion of oil, egg yolk, and either vinegar or lemon juice,with many options for embellishment with other herbs and spices. Proteins and lecithin in the egg yolk serve as emulsifiers in both mayonnaise and hollandaise sauce.[3] Commercial egg-free alternatives are available for vegans and others who want to avoid animal products and cholesterol, or who are allergic to eggs” (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayonnaise)

As mentioned by Wikipedia, the authentic traditional recipes uses raw eggs and there is a version which is eggless. As for the eggless version, I have saw many types of recipe that ranges from the use of condensed milk to cream or milk.

I have prepared both version for the benefits of the readers and give readers a choice. One is the authentic version using raw eggs and I have to highlight to the readers that the egg yolks used are raw meaning it was not cooked. It is GENERALLY SAFE to eat raw eggs in mayonnaise, tiramisu, smoothies , ice cream etc.. However, there is a slight risk of about 1 in 20,000 to 30,000 chances that the eggs may be infected by salmonella that can lead to food poisoning (source: http://kellythekitchenkop.com/are-raw-eggs-safe-to-eat-real-food-wednesday/). Therefore, homemade mayonnaise does pose a minimal risk of food poisoning unless you can get pasteurized eggs. Commercial mayonnaise are prepared using pasteurized eggs and hence it is safe to eat.

For this eggless version, I have decided to use the soya bean milk as the base. Soya bean milk gave a slight aroma and the whole family agreed unanimously the eggless version is more delicious. As for the soya bean milk, you can always get the package soya bean milk or homemade soya bean milk. If you are interested in homemade soya bean milk which is very easy, you can always refer to this post: Homemade Firm Tofu aka Taukwa (自制点豆腐)

I am using an immersion blender to do the job which is very fast. If you do not have any immersion blender, a normal blender or even hand whisk will do the job but it will take much longer time. The mayonnaise can be used for dips and I have used it to prepare some Japanese potatoes salad which my kids like it very much. You can always refer to this post for the recipe: Japanese Potato Salad (ポテトサラダ 日式土豆色拉)

Note:

  • Homemade mayonnaise is advised to be consumed as soon as possible. Unlike store bought mayonnaise, homemade mayonnaise shall be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator and can keep for a period of 3-4 days. Therefore, this recipe yields a reasonable serving for 1-2 meals and do not made more than this recipe suggested unless you have a party to avoid wastage.

  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of tomato ketchup to the blending and this will become the thousand island dressings. You always add your preferred herbs if you are using this as dips for your fries or deep fried food.

CONCLUSION

Once again, I prefer the eggless version and I especially love the faint aroma of soya bean in the mayonnaise. If you cannot get soya bean milk in the store, you may have to Google “eggless mayonnaise + cream” for a recipe. Though the risk of consuming raw egg mayonnaise is very low, possibly because of the psychological barrier, for homemade, I still prefer the vegan version. The choice of recipe will definitely in the readers hand.
