I was inspired to make my own mayonnaise this weekend. Let me tell you, it was TOUGH ON THE FOREARM. You have to whisk, whisk, whisk, the whole time you are S-L-O-W-L-Y adding the oil. A cup and a half of oil didn’t seem like a lot to whisk at first, but I think it multiplied while I was working! The kitchen got a little shower of oil when I found out I’m not quite as coordinated with my left hand. It makes me wonder whether you could make it work in the ol’ Kitchenaid. I’m trying that next time.
We don’t really use much mayonnaise in my house, actually, I’m the only one who eats it and not that often. The husband has sworn it off, along with Chinese fast food and pretty much lunch altogether (it’s a lot like this). I don’t tell him it’s in the pimento cheese.
