I'm trying to make homemade mayonaise and it's not really working out well.
I got a glass bowl that's fairly deep and use the following ingredients:
* 1 egg yolk* * 1/2 teaspoon salt (not kosher) * 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard * 2 pinches sugar * 2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice * 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar * 1 cup oil
I put the oil into a squeeze bottle, basically like a ketchup bottle so I can squeeze the oil out a few drops at a time in the beginning.
Well about 1/3rd of the way through I lose my emulsion and I'm left with egg and oil on top. Should I be using a whisk? The one I have I feel that the spacings are too far apart but I'm not sure.
How long should it take from start to finish to get this thing made? I don't know if I'm whisking too long or not...can you even whisk too long?
EDIT 1: I get an egg and separate the yolk out in a bowl and once i know it's all good I put it into my glass bowl. After this is done I add the sugar, dry mustard, salt, the vinegar and 1stp of the lemon juice.
I then start to whisk the crap out of this thing until it looks like it's been beat up. I then start to slowly add the oil. Just a drop or two at first, then slowly add more. I'm not sure if I'm adding the oil too fast or put the ingredients in wrong or what the deal is. At about the 50% mark I want to add the rest of the lemon juice.
