Homemade Mayonnaise with Olive Oil

  • 2 Egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 300 ml Extra-Virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of white pepper
  1. Put the egg yolks in a bowl and add a pinch of salt. Beat well together. Add the olive oil, 1 teaspoon at a time, beating constantly with an electric mixer.
  2. After one-quarter of the oil has been added and absorbed, then beat in 1-2 teaspoons of the lemon juice. Continue beating in the oil, in a thin, steady stream. As the mayonnaise thickens, add another teaspoon of lemon juice.
  3. When all the oil has been beaten in, add the mustard. Taste the mayonnaise and add more lemon juice if needed. Season with salt and pepper. Add the boiling water, whisking well. Homemade mayonnaise will keep, covered in the refrigerator for up to one week.
