An Easy Way To Make Mayonnaise| Cooking Skills


I think I have to whisk things together

I'm gonna make mayonnaise uh-huh make

man man is what sir what okay Oh God

just go to the supermarket like regular

people all right so today we're gonna

make mayonnaise did not know mayonnaise

was made of these things

I thought mayonnaise just like exists

let's put in the egg yeah that's vinegar

lemon juice this is what you gave me so

I'm just throwing everything in there

and praying for a miracle let's see what

this is this oil and I'm just gonna mix

it next smells awful why isn't it okay

whatever as mayonnaise have to set I

wonder I feel like there should be more

ingredients

oh this isn't embarrassed my mom when

she sees this like I taught you nothing

sometimes it's all about just having fun

this is the future looks like something

that could like suck your eye up oh now

we getting the creme de la creme this

better turn to mayonnaise

[Applause]

[Music]

ah this is a mason jar with a little

device to shoot you cheek

dry press oh if I scare what I'm

doing I don't think I'm making me sit

and wait and wait and whip and hope

something happens here come on Danny if

you're working yeah this is a problem

and I guess I slept in this officially

is a family man a it's like the residue

of like an alien egg they think it's on

its way to me right oh god this cousin

yeah

oh no it's separating this didn't go

well I'm leaving all right off we go

let's make some mayonnaise

there's my yep egg yolk vinegar ha I'm

just gonna whisk in a little bit of this

oil add a little bit here at a time I

think it's working

whisk for your life don't let a tricky

because you will add a bunch of oil in

and then it's gonna sweat and then

you're gonna cry yourself to sleep

creating it's getting a little more

solid it's really not going that's oil

and an egg there's mayonnaise it's

mayonnaise I'm gonna start a mayonnaise

line it's gonna be neon e's homemade

little manners I don't suggest doing

this at home if you really want to

impress someone so to make mayonnaise we

are going to make an emulsion and this

is one of the fundamental culinary

skills that you need in the kitchen the

egg yolk is our primary emulsifier here

that means it's the thing that's going

to hold the two things that don't like

to go together together in this case the

two things that don't like each other

are oil and vinegar

we have vinegar both in the form of just

plain old white vinegar but we also have

lemon juice which in the kitchen behaves

just like vinegar does because they're

both acidic when you're making your

mayonnaise it actually doesn't really

matter because they function the same

way I'm gonna use a little bit of lemon

juice today mix the egg yolk and the

vinegar together and what I'm looking

for is this is start to get a little bit

foamy all right and we're looking for

this to be pretty liquidy at this point

the thing that makes mayonnaise thick is

the oil content I'm just gonna start

adding the oil and just one or two drops

at a time you want to keep this moving

throughout the entire process makes

that it's really really really well

mixed in before I add anymore so one of

the visual indicators to me that I'm

making my mayonnaise correctly is that

the color is changing consistently

getting a little bit lighter agitation

is key here because the smaller the

bubbles of oil in the mixture the easier

it's going to be for them to hang on to

that egg yolk so if I keep it moving I

really break up the oil in the process

then I can start increasing the speed in

which I add the oil I'm starting to get

little ribbons meaning that when I pull

the whisk back and forth it kind of

leaves streaks behind in it and that

shows me that this is starting to

thicken up no matter what I'm not

stopping whisking during the process

sometimes my bowl likes to get away from

me a little bit one good trick is to

just take a kitchen towel and just place

it under the bowl and this is going to

prevent the sliding you can see my bowl

isn't moving around as much anymore I'm

doing this by hand because I think it's

important to see the demonstration of

the process but any tool that agitates

quickly like a blender a whisk a mixer

were actually really great for making

mayonnaise however it is possible to

over mix the mayonnaise early on and

cause it to separate so you just want to

be careful that you're still adding that

oil nice and slowly regardless of what

tool you're using now we can see this is

really coming together in fact it kind

of can almost stand up on its own so

we're gonna keep going until it's no

longer dripping off the whisk

that's about what we're looking for it

doesn't drip away from the whisk so the

last thing that you would want to do is

just adjust your seasoning make sure

that you add a little bit of salt if you

want to the process here really requires

a lot of patience if you are finding

that you're having a problem where

you're ending up with a thin mixture

where the oil and the vinegar are

separating away from each other you're

probably just rushing it really go

slowly with adding that oil in and

you'll be guaranteed much more likely

success that is our homemade mayonnaise

Mayo my mini

yay finish egg oil soup egg mess it's

not ma'am its Mayo juice whose

mayonnaise in there find it I'm like a

genius in the kitchen
