more homemade


What do you get if you whisk together two egg yolks, a whole lot of oil, some vinegar, lemon juice, mustard and add a bulb of roasted garlic? Delicious homemade mayonnaise!

What was good: the garlic. Even just the smell of it cooking. And I promise, not overbearing in the mayonnaise at all.

What was not so good: using extra virgin olive oil. It was just too strong, and much more overpowering than the garlic. Next time I will use a much milder olive oil, or a mix of olive and something less flavoursome.

I’m looking forward to making it again, and experimenting with the flavours. It’s so much fun making things from scratch that you usually buy in packets or jars!


  1. I agree, Extra Virgin is way too overpowering. We made the mistake of buying a 4L tin and for months everything tasted like it. We now only buy the extra light olive oil which not only has all the health benefits of olive oil, it is so lovely and mild. :)

  2. I tried to do this over the weekend and failed! Miserably!!

    What recipe did you use? You should do a video recipe so I can see how you made it!!


Thank you!!
