Although mayonnaise does come readymade in a jar which is made by food service companies, it is more fun to make. If a family have many young children, they will enjoy making several jars of mayonnaise which can even be given away as presents at Christmas. Flavoured mayonnaise gives a twist on this condiment which can then be added to a wide variety of meals. So, how to make flavoured mayonnaise?
Put mayonnaise into a mixing bowl
When a large serving of flavoured mayonnaise will be made, use several spoonfuls. For a smaller portion, add a solitary spoonful. If it will be prepared and served at a barbeque, put an entire jar of mayonnaise into a mixing bowl.
Before adding ingredients, think about what flavour mayonnaise should have. If a spicy mayonnaise is preferred, add a teaspoon of chilli powder. For a mild mayonnaise, add mustard and sprinkle seasoning such as Dill and oregano. As there are many types of mustard, a very spicy mayonnaise can be made with this other condiment. English mustard has a strong flavour and it can change mayonnaise where it will have a completely different taste. No matter what type of mayonnaise is made, always add salt and pepper. The combination of salt and pepper with the other ingredients will result in a taste sensation.
As soon as flavoured mayonnaise is made, put it in a fridge. If mayonnaise is served chilled, it will taste better. Mayonnaise doesn’t have to be left in a fridge for a while. In fact, it could instead be stored for an hour before it can then be used.
There are many other ingredients which mayonnaise can be modified into having:
Other condiments don’t have to be added to mayonnaise because herbs can be the only other ingredients. As already mentioned, oregano and Dill is perfect to put into mayonnaise. Other herbs can be added, such as basil and mint. When many herbs are in mayonnaise, it will taste completely different.
Sun dried tomatoes
Sun dried tomatoes have a distinct taste. When several of them are chopped and put into mayonnaise along with a sprinkling of pepper, it will have a remarkable taste.
For something completely different, fry several cloves of garlic and put them into mayonnaise. Even if only two or three cloves of garlic are used, mayonnaise will have a very strong flavour and will be perfect for a burger or a hot dog.
For a really spicy mayo, make one which resembles a curry. First, put several cups of mayonnaise into a mixing bowl. Next, add many spices and mix them together. Along with pepper, add jeera, cumin, garam masala and chilli powder plus paprika. When all of these spices are mixed thoroughly for several minutes, this combination will result in a wonderful taste. Mayonnaise could be served in naan bread alongside a curry. If a very hot curry is being eaten, mayonnaise can cool down a person’s mouth.
