Trying to get fresh, fascinating ideas, inspiring recipes that I've never used before, to astonish my family with. Hunting for a long time unfortunately could not discover too many interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I found this yummy and easy dessert simply by accident on ambitiouskitchen. The dessert looked so mouth-watering on its pic, it called for fast action.
It was not difficult to imagine just how it is made, how it tastes and how much my hubby will want it. Actually, it is quite easy to keep happy the man when it comes to desserts. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or perhaps he is.Anyhow, I visited the page and then followed the step-by-step instuctions that had been combined with wonderful snap shots of the procedure. It really makes life rather easy. I could imagine that it is a bit of a inconvenience to take pics in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may normally have gross hands thus i sincerely appreciate the time and energy she devote for making this blogpost and recipe conveniently followed.
With that said I'm empowered to present my own, personal recipe similarly. Many thanks for the thought.
I had been tweaking the original mixture to make it for the taste of my family. I have to tell you it turned out an awesome outcome. They enjoyed the taste, the thickness and loved having a delicacy like this during a busy workweek. They quite simply demanded even more, a lot more. So next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am going to double the volume .
I've such an affinity for DIY recipes - there's something so satisfying about having the ability to create something at home that you previously would have only ever seriously considered purchasing at a food store. While I've churned out things like peppermint patties, Cheez-Its, Klondikes, Nutella, and even fish sticks, the one area I haven't delved into quite definitely is condiments. You know this Pittsburgh girl has no interest in an alternative to Heinz ketchup, but I have been wanting to decide to try my hand at mayonnaise, both because I always thought it would be satisfying to make my very own, and also because of all the different variations that I really could make on a small scale.
It took me a few tries, but I finally mastered homemade mayonnaise and it was just as <a href="http://www.suncakemom.com/treats/no-bake-sugar-free-coconut-balls-recipe/">amazing</a> as I had hoped it would be!
It was one of those recipes that necessitated three tries before I struck gold. I attempted multiple recipes, used a food processor, a blender, and ultimately the winning combination was a slightly adapted recipe from Alton Brown, a bowl, a whisk and some elbow grease. After all of my previous attempts ended in oily eggs, carrying it out by hand yielded a perfectly emulsified mayonnaise. It took some patience, but it was 100% worthwhile. I love opening the icebox and looking at the jar, still surprised that I was able to do it!
I'm thrilled to add yet another store-bought item to my list of DIY recipes that I have conquered!
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
2 pinches granulated sugar (optional)
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (can sub apple cider or rice wine vinegar)
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 . In a sizable glass bowl, whisk together the egg yolk, mustard, sea salt and sugar (if using).
2. In a small bowl, stir together the vinegar and lemon juice. Whisk half of the vinegar mixture into the egg mixture until thoroughly combined.
3. Start whisking briskly, then begin adding the oil a few drops at a time, before liquid begins to thicken and lighten a bit. Once you reach the period, continue whisking while you add the oil in a very slow, steady stream. Once half of the oil has been incorporated, whisk in the remaining vinegar mixture. Continue whisking until all of the oil is incorporated.
4. Enable the mixture to sit at room temperature for one to two hours, then refrigerate for up to 1 week.
Note: If you have an aversion to raw eggs or are pregnant, substitute pasteurized eggs. You can usually find these in regular grocery stores; Davidson's is a popular pasteurized brand.

Sunrise Girl- I use a blend of olive oil and another light tasting oil because for me, all olive oil is simply too strong of a taste. I guess this will depend on if you should be using it only for sandwiches or as a base (like for a salad of some kind). You will be able to taste the distinct olive oil flavor if you are using all regular.
I pointed out that she demands light olive oil which has a lighter taste. You'll notice even the store brands that are olive oil mayo" have a combination of olive oil and canola or soybean.
I have been making mayo for a couple of months now with this recipe -diy-homemade-mayo-in-2-minutes/
I add 1 clove of fresh garlic on top of the egg and I do not even chop it.
Really easy and yummy!
- 4/3 cup of your fav oil (we do 1/2 olive, 1/2 safflower)
- squirt of dijon mustard
- little lemon juice
1) Put all ingredients in the jar (I usually put the egg in last so pouring the oil in doesn't break the yoke)
2) Place blender head at the bottom of the jar
3) hit the button - white stuff (mayo) should start coming out
4) CRUCIAL!!! Keep the blender head at the bottom until mayo stops developing (If you just pull it straight up, you'll end up with very runny mayo)
5) If the mayo stops coming out, slowly pull the stick blender up after which push it back down, allowing oil to be incorporated into the mixture / emulsification a little at any given time.
6) When all is incorporated, tidy up and enjoy!
This really is one of the easiest ways to make mayo that I know of yet. So easy, I make it on demand and seriously surprise my friends at the goodness that comes out of that little jar.
