  • 1 t Salt (Table)
  • 2 T Sugar (Icing)
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 1/2 t paprika
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1/2 t ground white pepper
  • 1/2 t onion powder
  • In The Pot:
  • 1.5 T Flour (Plain)
  • 1/2 T mustard powder
  • 1/2 c water (boiling)
  • 2 T vinegar
  • To Emulsify:
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1.5 c oil (the blander the better - do NOT use olive oil!)


Mix the first lot of spices together.  Set aside.

Mix the flour, mustard, boiling water, and vinegar together in a small pot until smooth.  Cook until smooth and paste-like (but not too thick).  Set aside.

Place the egg yolks in a bowl; add the oil drop by drop at first while mixing with an electric hand mixer (tilt the bowl if needed).  Once an emulsion forms, you can add the oil a bit faster.  Continue adding until all the oil is incorporated.

Slowly add the hot mixture from the pot into the oil-egg mixture.  Then add the first lot of spices.  Adjust seasoning to taste.

Store in fridge.


SJ Note 29 March 2010: This is tasty!  Definitely has the right consistency; the flavoring will take some tweaking, but it is good for me as listed here.  I was a bit concerned about the consistency for a bit, but the flour mixture really helped thicken it up.
