Homemade Mayo!

I decided to make my own mayonnaise today. I was inspired in part by the recipe in my Earth to Table book, and partly by the delicious Rideau Rye bread on my counter that was just screaming to be made into a sandwich. The recipe is fairly simple, it just requires a lot of whisking and a bit of patience as you drizzle the oil in gradually. Rather than repeat the recipe verbatim, I'll let the photos tell the story, although I can't resist a few captions...

I wished I had a higher quality mustard...I would have used Maille.

Much more whisking followed this stage in order to create the right consistency.

I'm happy to report that the mayo was delicious! I think I need to try it with some homemade french fries next...
