OK, so seeing as I posted a vegan mayonnaise recipe the other day, and bemoaned all things traditional in the mayonnaise world, I felt it was only fair that I give both teams a fair hearing, and post a regular basic mayonnaise recipe using our beloved eggs. Cause I must admit, I do love eggs; and they are key in the main stream traditional blender mayonnaise world. There are tons of mayonnaise recipes out there and they are all pretty similar. You need eggs, oil, vinegar and a bit of sweetness and tartness. The magic is in the emulsification, and of course, our beloved blender (Vitamix).
I really thought about which basic mayonnaise recipe was going to get the recipe post guernsey. I settled on adapting this simple blender recipe from a trusty favourite that came out my much loved, dog eared copy of The Liver Cleansing Diet by Dr Sandra Cabot. This book swept through Australia years ago, and remains just as relevant today. The information is invaluable, and the vegetarian recipes are absolutely delicious. It takes pride of place on my health bookshelf, and I refer to it regularly. If you are not acquainted with this book, do yourself a favour and have a read. Your liver will rejoice.
