Whilst you can whisk this by hand, it will take quite an effort, use a food processor if you have one.
Pop the egg yolks in a food processor with the dijon mustard. and turn the food processor on.
The first 30 seconds of making mayonnaise is the most crucial, so be careful during this period and go slow with the oil.
SLOWLY begin pouring the oil into the food processor while it’s on. After 30 seconds or so, you can start pouring faster. Turn off the processor when you’ve added all the oil.
Add the salt and pepper, then cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the mayonnaise mixture.
Give the mix a quick burst with the food processor and you are done! Store your mayonnaise in the fridge.
