Ellen's Fermented Mayonnaise

Can I make my own fermented food? Of course! Friday Ferments will give you some great ideas to start your own kitchen experiments.

Let’s start with Zuurkool juice or that tiny bit of liquid in the bottom of the jar (which my partner always leaves for me to drink, true love right? 😆💕) I make mayonnaise with the juice. Then I use the mayonisse in salads, on sandwiches and making devilled eggs.


3 egg yolks,

2 tsp mustard,

50 ml Zuurkool juice,

500 ml extra light olive oil or sunflower oil

pinch of salt to taste


Place egg yolks mustard and juice in a jug, blend with a stick blender slowly add oil in a very thin drizzle till thick

Good luck 😉and enjoy. Once you’ve made your own mayo you may never go back to buying it.

It should last about a month in the fridge but mine never does 😉 we eat a bit of mayo
