Homemade mayonnaise. Its one of those accompaniments that is so easy to just buy from the shops. I cant lie as I do have some in the fridge however I will say that ever since I could make mayonnaise, when I get the opportunity I will always make some.
Having it on the side for your BBQ when your friends come over or our family favourite of using up left over lamb to make lamb wraps with crunchy slaw. The sharpness that it brings cannot be compared to shop bought mayonnaise and the homemade kind really does bring out the best of the dish your making.
One good thing, it can also be the base to upscale to whatever fills that creative catering mind. Add some capers, gherkins and parsley and you have tartare sauce, spice it up by adding some pickled jalapenos or sweet chilli sauce to heighten a burger. The list is endless.
This version uses the food processor method, as sometimes my family table does not have the time for me to do it in a bowl (traditionally). That extra couple of minutes really do count when getting dinner on the table for my hungry kids.
Get making and really taste the difference and you won’t turn back, I promise.
