Tarragon Mayonnaise

1 largeEgg yolk
1 ½ teaspoonsFresh lemon juice
1 teaspoonSparrow Lane Tarragon Vinegar
¼ teaspoonDijon mustard
½ teaspoonSalt, plus more to taste
¾ cupCanola oil, divided

 

Combine egg yolk, lemon juice, tarragon vinegar, mustard and teaspoon salt in blender. Blend until bright yellow in color.

Slowly, VERY slowly, pour cup oil into yolk mixture, a few drops at a time.* Keep the blender going at all times.

Gradually add remaining cup oil in a slow, steady stream, until mayonnaise is thick. Mayonnaise should be light in color.

Add more salt if needed. Cover and chill. Mayonnaise can be made up to two days ahead if kept chilled.


*Adding oil must be done very slowly, drop by drop. This is a slow process and will take some time approximately 12-15 minutes.
