Secondly, it acts as an emulsifier, ensuring the mayo remains stable and doesn't separate. Feel free to explore different mustard varieties, like honey mustard, to customize the flavor to your liking.
- Salt and pepper: These basic seasonings are essential for enhancing the overall taste of the mayo, providing a balanced flavor profile.

💭Frequently asked questions
Q: Can I use a different type of oil instead of sunflower oil?
A: Yes, you can experiment with other oils, such as canola oil, avocado oil, or light olive oil. Just ensure that the oil has a neutral flavor to let the other ingredients shine.
Q: Can I use store-bought minced garlic instead of fresh garlic cloves?
A: While fresh garlic cloves provide the best flavor, you can use store-bought minced garlic as a convenient substitute. Keep in mind that the intensity of the garlic flavor may vary.
Q: Can I use a regular blender instead of a hand blender?
A: Yes, you can use a regular blender. Just make sure to gradually drizzle the oil into the blender while it's running to achieve the proper emulsion.
Q: Can I make a vegan version of this mayo?
A: I know for some it might be weird to use raw eggs in a recipe and eat it. If you do not want to do that my friend Freya from Sweeter Than Oats has an amazing vegan Mayonnaise
Q: Can I make a larger batch of mayonnaise?
A: Yes, you can double or triple the ingredients to make a larger batch. However, keep in mind the limited shelf life of the homemade mayo and consume it within 1 to 2 days.
Q: Can you make this recipe ahead?
You can totally make this mayo ahead. However, I would only recommend making it a few hours ahead. As it has fresh eggs in it the mayo won't stay good and fresh for long. See storage section for that.
Q: Can I make this mayo without mustard?
A :Mustard acts as an emulsifier and provides flavor, so omitting it may affect the stability and taste of the mayo. However, you can try substituting with a small amount of vinegar or lemon juice, but the results may vary.
Q: Can I freeze the mayo for later use?
