    I once worked as a kitchen help over summer. i was asked to make mayonaise. I just couldn't do it. The kitchen head was standing next to me, told me what to do and was also puzzled as to why the heck my mayonaise wouldn't come together. I came here in hope to learn how to but alas.. i'm still as stumped as before.

    To be fair mayo isn't a basic cooking skill so I can't blame them that much. In my first semester of culinary I was literally shook on how mayo was made.

    I don't get why mayo is so "hard" to make. Though, I find the easiest ways are food processor with speed control options or an immersion blender. I personally prefer an immersion blender and I don't bother to separate the egg. Crack an egg into a mason jar, pour 1 Tbsp lemon juice, 1 cup oil and salt to taste. Push the immersion blender to the bottom of the jar. Turn it on low power speed up as it starts to turn white. When it's completely white on the bottom, slowly pull up the blender until it everything looks like mayo. Voila, done. Faster, cheaper, easier and healthier than store bought mayo.

    what smart Americans


    Well, today i learned something...
    i make my mayonnaise without vinegar or citrus juice, and i use a whole egg plus some garlic sometimes. And it works perfectly ! In 5min i have a delicious homemade mayo. It's delicious with steamed or boiled zuchinnis or white fish and potatoes cooked in broth with other veggies 🤗.
    I use the blender and a tall, narrow contenant like some of them did.

    No wonder why mayo substitutes are cheaper (miracle whip, mayo magic, etc.) and is a preferred go-to for our local food joints. They think making their own mayo is too complicated, like the ones on the first half of the clip.
    To my fellow Filipinos on the food business: for christsakes, please stop using fake mayo. It tastes bad and doesn't go well with the food you are trying to incorporate it with like burgers.
