Mayonnaise Recipe Game Changer

A GOOD APPETITE, Melissa Clark

“Don’t you know the mayonnaise trick? My friend Dori and I were standing in front of Empire Mayonnaise in Brooklyn..when she asked me that.  If there was a trick for making mayonnaise, I certainly did not know it.  And what a trick–a potential game-changer, the kind that turns homemade mayo from a special-occasion recipe into an everyday endeavor, ending our dependence on subpar, corn syrup filled commercial stuff.

Adding a teaspoon of water to the yolks before dripping in the oil helps create a stronger and more stable emulsion.”
