Home-made mayonnaise recipe

Making home-made mayonnaise is just so satisfying.
Yes, it does require a bit of wrist work, but then again there are electric whisks!
Here is a really basic recipe for an awesome home-made mayo. It is thick and rich, and gorgeous with steak or in a potato salad.
I've made it twice now, to rave reviews from friends.

Here is the simple recipe:
-1 egg yolk
-1 heaped teaspoon dijon mustard
-1 and a half teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- half a cup of vegetable oil

In a clean dry bowl, whisk together the yolk, mustard and lemon juice, then gradually add the oil, whisking fervently to get the consistency thick and well blended.
Then serve :-)
It makes about 2/3 of a cup.
If you want more, just double the quantities.
