Homemade Mayonnaise

The other night when I went to the store to go shopping for the poached egg dinner, I could not for the life of me remember if we had eggs or not. I convinced myself that we were out. But guess what… we weren’t. So now we have a ton of eggs in the house and not enough time to eat them all.

Of course I got this bright idea to make egg salad for Lish, Eric and myself until I realized we had everything but mayonnaise. This is when I came up with an even brighter idea. I’ll just make mayonnaise. I had everything I needed, why not just go for it? So I went for it. While making the mayonnaise was physically tough, technique wise it was pretty easy. As long as you can whisk really REALLY fast. However, while I was able to get the mayonnaise to set up and actually be mayonnaise, you aren’t supposed to touch it for one to two hours. I am not a very patient person and I of course touched it too early and blew the whole thing.

Needless to say I have no egg salad to show for my hard work. But I do have some great pictures. Hopefully next time will be a success.

I know there are a lot of pictures, but I thought this was pretty cool. Even cooler is that when I posted on facebook that I made homemade mayonnaise, someone replied, “wouldn’t it be easier to just go to the store.” Well yes, it would have been easier. Thanks for making me feel like an idiot.
