Recipe for Homemade Mayo

Like the Pams Classic American Mayo wanted. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. My family love the Pams one so I thought for the amount we go through it would be cheaper for me to make a similar product.

3 egg yolks
300 ml extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1 - 2 lemons
freshly ground pepper (preferably white)

All ingredients need to be at room temperature.

Whisk the egg yolks (use a hand whisk, or an electric whisk or a small food processor) until well blended and starting to thicken. Very gradually trickle in the oil, keep whisking and when you have added about a third of the oil it should be starting to thicken. As it thickens you can increase the rate at which you add the oil.

When it gets very thick add the juice of one lemon, this will thin it down. Add salt and pepper, continue to add the oil until you have a very thick mayonnaise.

Taste and adjust with more seasoning or lemon juice if it needs it. If it tastes too eggy it needs more salt.

You can vary this basic mayo by adding Dijon mustard or fresh garlic, chopped herbs, chopped capers, gherkins or anchovies.
