Do you know, The Mom bought a carton of 18 eggs on Thursday, while she still had 6 from her other carton, and by Friday afternoon there were only 6 eggs left again? She made muffins on Thursday, and on Friday: cookies, ice cream, Monte Cristo sandwiches for supper, and…
- She wanted to try the cooked one this time, so the mayonnaise would keep longer; so she used the double boiler as the recipe suggested, in order to cook it very slowly.
- It said to stir and cook until it started to bubble. She stirred & stirred, it got thicker & thicker, and she finally realized it was never gonna bubble.
- Another recipe called for hard boiled eggs, so she assumed this would still be okay, and scraped it into the food processor.
- The amount was so small (3 egg yokes, 1 t. honey, a little mustard), that the blades were not reaching it.
- So she thought once she started adding the oil, it might work. This was an attraction of the new food processor: a little hole just for pouring in oil for making mayonnnaise.
- The oil had trouble getting to the “thin stream” stage, and there was soon oil all over the place.
- The recipe had “emergency” suggestions, for in case you end up with a lumpy mess: whisk up another egg yoke, and slowly add the mess… it worked!
- So she put it back into the food processor, for adding the rest of the oil.
- Mess happened again. So she whipped up another egg yoke, and added Mess #2. This time she added the rest of the oil here, rather than back into the food processor.
RESULT: Nice, thick mayonnaise!
It wasn’t really all that hard, since she used her hand mixer. Next time, she’ll START with that!
Today’s eggs: deviled.
