VIDEO: How to Make Mayonnaise in Four Different Ways


Learn how to make mayonnaise in four different ways with this easy video guide from Leith’s Cookery School.

– Stuff baked potatoes with tinned tuna mixed with mayonnaise, finely chopped spring onion and sweetcorn.
– Mix flaked smoked fish (trout or mackerel would be lovely or use the old reliable, smoked salmon) with mayonnaise and chopped capers. Spoon over warm boiled or baked potatoes.
– Make our classic Prawn Cocktail.

Mix warm cooked baby potatoes (leave the skin on) with a dressing made from 4 tablespoons of home-made mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of buttermilk, 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard, a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper, 1 tablespoon of finely chopped parsley, 1 tablespoon of finely chopped fresh mint and 1 tablespoon of piccalilli. Serve warm or cold. (Store any leftover dressing in a jar in the fridge and use within 3 days). Why not serve the baby potato salad with home-made focaccia from the award-winning The Sportsman restaurant?
To make home-made piccalilli try out the River Cottage recipe from the rightly-famous Pam Corbin, also known fondly as ‘Pam the Jam’. You’ll find a video where Pam shows how to make it below.
