It’s pretty amazing how something as trivial as making my own mayonnaise can send me into bursts of excitement, even if I seem calm on the outside. Or at least I think I seem calm on the outside.
I failed the damned thing on my 1st try. Perhaps, it was because I forgot to consult the almanac and the dog star was partially covered by the clouds.
Perhaps, it was also because I didn’t bother to measure the amount of oil to use.
Oh well. Day 2 take 2: quite the success! The mayonnaise emulsified and thickened up substantially, even though I STILL didn’t measure the amount of oil. I’m going to make another batch soon because the EVOO that I used was too nutty for my liking. Once I succeed in perfecting the mayonnaise of my world, I will bid kewpie mayo farewell!
