Okay, so. In the previous post, we spoke a little about the Mother Sauces. To make sure that you guys don't freak yourselves out over making them, we're gonna eeeeeease ourselves into it (and prepare your arms because you will be whisking a LOT). So you're gonna learn how to make mayo. Now, this is where you have to set aside your hatred for eggs. Actually, this is a egg fan account so if you don't like eggs you should leave now. You also are gonna have to set aside any qualms you have with eating....raw egg.
Yes, mayonnaise is made with raw eggs.
Note-Commercially made mayo is full of acid and preservatives that extends the life of the condiment by killing bacteria. Also, the eggs used in prepared mayo are pasteurized to kill harmful bacteria. So, unless you're using farm fresh, unpasteurized eggs, you *shouldn't* get sick. If you are pregnant, elderly, or have a compromised immune system however, it might do you well to not try to make this, just in case!!
