Preparing homemade mayonnaise in a blender is very simple. What is required? Immersion blender and products: 200 g of vegetable oil (sunflower or olive), vinegar, 1-2 eggs, salt, spices.
Blender for mayonnaise
To make homemade mayonnaise need to use immersion blender. Why the submersible is the reason is simple. The stationary blender knives are located at the bottom of the jug. When you cook mayonnaise, then break 1-2 eggs into a bowl, add a spoon of mustard, seasonings ... And all this together makes up a rather thin layer. In most models with a bowl (especially with a cylindrical, and not with a tapered) knives are above this level.
The second condition is good if there is tall glass in the kit. In a flat and wide dish, mayonnaise is bad.
Consider for example a few very suitable models for making mayonnaise (although in principle any leg blender will work). For example, the Philips HR 1634 blender (650 W) comes with a 1 L tall glass with a comfortable handle.
If the glass has cover - like Bosch MSM 6B700 - you can put ready-made mayonnaise right in the same container in the refrigerator for storage. The disadvantages of the model include only noise at work and expensive components.
More powerful and multifunctional model - Kenwood HB724 - has 5 speeds with smooth adjustment and several different nozzles, including - for the preparation of mashed potatoes. The advantage of this model is that it does not heat up, even if you have to whip for a long time. The handle is rubberized, so it is very comfortable in the hand.
Some models of submersible blenders include special nozzle for mayonnaise. An example is the Moulinex DD868A. High-quality 700 W blender, 20 speeds with continuous adjustment and turbo mode. In turbo mode, mayonnaise can be mixed in just 10 seconds.
How to make mayonnaise in a blender?
To make mayonnaise in a blender you will need:
- 200 g of oil (sunflower or olive). Keep in mind - olive will give a bitter taste.
- 1-2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (can be replaced with vinegar or citric acid)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 0.5-1 tsp. Mustard (if you want "Provence")
- pinch sugar, pepper
Important! For better mixing, all ingredients should be the same temperature. Or, before cooking, put everything in a refrigerator for half an hour, or hold all the products in advance on the kitchen table.
Eggs should be broken into a tall, but narrow glass (with a diameter slightly wider than the blender head), add lemon juice, salt, sugar, pepper and mustard and beat. Use the mixer will not work - the mixer beats the eggs into the foam, and the blender - it mixes. Blender set to the bottom capacity and include. When the mass is mixed, add the oil - first very slowly, drop by drop, then - in a spoon, then pour in a thin stream. Move the blender up and down to drive the butter. If the mayonnaise is still cooked in a stationary blender, the oil is poured in drops or a thin stream through the hole in the lid of the device.
If the mayonnaise came out very thick - add 1-2 tablespoons of warm water or milk and beat again.
If the mayonnaise is too liquid - transfer the mass to another container, beat the egg again and gradually add the liquid mayonnaise to it, continuing to mix.
There are a lot of recipes for homemade mayonnaise - you can add a variety of products to the mass - for example, greens, onions, pickled cucumbers. And to make lean mayonnaise, eggs are replaced with flour or ground walnuts. It all depends on your taste and imagination.
