Michelle's French Mayonnaise in a Flash!

Recipe by French Tart
READY IN: 4mins
YIELD: 1 1/2 Pint




  • Take a tall measuring jug or a tall glass container - it must be tall apparently!
  • Put the egg yolks, Dijon mustard, garlic if using, salt & pepper in the jug. Mix them together.
  • Pour in the oil.
  • Using a hand blender - plunge it all the way to the bottom and then turn it on.
  • NOTE: (The hand blender is one of those long thin ones, that has concealed blades underneath at the bottom.).
  • Then very slowly pull it up towards the top of the jug, you will see the mixture turning into mayonnaise as you pull it up!
  • Add the lemon juice as soon as your mixture has turned into mayonnaise!
  • Blitz it again with the hand blender, taste & season again if you wish.
  • Store in a jam jar for up to a week in the fridge.
  • N.B. If you don't have a container which holds 500 ml, you can halve the quantities with no problem at all.
  • Et voila, c'est parfait!
