How to make mayonnaise with a magic bullet

Homemade mayonnaise is a great alternative to commercial brands. If you want a light, fresh mayonnaise that is free of preservatives, make your own and cater it to the taste of your own family. With your Magic Bullet, you can make mayonnaise in minutes. Use homemade mayonnaise for a fresh flavour on sandwiches and in homemade salads. Modify the ingredients, get creative and let your family experiment to create new and unique flavours.

Insert the flat blade into your Magic Bullet. Crack one egg into the tall cup of your Magic Bullet. Add 1/4 cup of vegetable oil, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, 1/4 tsp of dry, ground mustard and 3/4 tsp of salt.

Press down on the cup for 10 seconds at a time for two or three cycles. Remove the cup and add an additional 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. Repeat the pulsing process for two or three cycles.

Repeat the process until you have added all of the vegetable oil, in 1/4-cup increments. Blend in 1 tbsp of hot water, pulsing in 10-second increments until the mixture is well blended and is a thick, creamy consistency.

Seal the mayonnaise in an airtight container and refrigerate it until you are ready to use it. Fresh mayonnaise will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.
