Method

  1. Mix the egg yolks with the mustard powder, pepper, 1 tbsp cider vinegar and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Mix the oils together in a jug. Use an electric whisk to whisk the yolk mixture, then very slowly, drip-by-drip, add the oil. When the mixture is pale and thicker, and no oil is visible, swap from a drip to a slow, steady stream – whisking all the while.
  2. When all the oil is added and you have a thick mayonnaise, taste and season with more vinegar, salt and pepper. Stir in the lemon zest and chives, then chill until ready to serve.

I made this to accompany the roasted salmon recipe (with sides of roast potatoes and stir fried spring greens). We couldn't find groundnut oil so used walnut oil instead. At first it tasted a bit weird but after adding more vinegar, salt, pepper and some lemon juice, it came out really nice- and it added a special touch to the meal. Try it- I didn't realise mayonnaise was so easy to make!
