My Goals and Discoveries
Long shelf life
Pasteurizing the eggs by microwaving them allows us to store this mayo in the refrigerator for up to one month.
Rich, tangy flavor
Lemon juice and mustard bring zippy flavors while salt and sugar add depth.
Whisking oil into the microwaved yolk mixture cools it, preventing it from overthickening. This step creates a strong emulsion, the necessary starting point for a stable mayonnaise.
