I promise you that once you’ve made your own mayonnaise, you’ll never buy another supermarket jar ever again

Again, it’s another great recipe to have under your belt, that’ll get you out of any “what shall I serve with this?” Hole you find yourself in!

By adding chopped gherkins and capers you’ve made tartare sauce! Which is fantastic with your beer battered fish

And it’ll keep in your fridge for a few days

Why not try mixing some Thai curry paste into it and serve with fish cakes?! Add some basil and serve with some poached fish?!! You see the list is endless, just experiment


3 medium egg yolks

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp English mustard

1 tsp white wine vinegar

100ml vegetable oil

100ml olive oil

Good squeeze of lemon

Salt and pepper


Place the egg yolks, mustards and vinegar into a mixing bowl

Mix the oils together

Whilst whisking constantly, add the oils in a steady stream, you’ll start to get a really thick creamy mayonnaise

Add the squeeze of lemon and season to taste

And there you go! As easy as that!!

Homemade Mayonnaise!!

I’ve used my homemade mayonnaise to make tartare sauce for my fish and chips
