  • EASY


- For the mayonnaise: Using the K-Mojo DigiMaster’s emulsifier attachment, switch on the machine at the lowest setting.

- Pour in the egg yolks, salt, lemon juice, vinegar and mustard. Speed up the DigiMaster to its highest setting and run for 30 seconds.

- Change the machine’s speed to its lowest setting again.

- Pour the oil as slowly as possible while the machine is running. Be patient. It should take around 2 minutes, if not more.

- By the time you’ve run out of oil, a thick mayonnaise would have formed. Optional: Store in a sealable jar in the fridge and use as you see fit.

- For the Marie Rose Sauce: Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir.

- Serve as a dipping sauce with crudites or in a Prawn Cocktail. Enjoy!


TIP: You can tweak the recipe to your taste. E.g. adding more or less lemon juice, Tabasco, sugar or tomato puree.
