Remember we lived in Holland for 5 years. At first we missed some stuff. But later we just used  what was locally available..
Now I dont even touch Mrs Balls now.  :imaposer:

I have been living and working as an expat for almost 12yrs now. You get used to missing some things, even Mrs Balls eventually. But there are some things like a lekker stuk plaas boerewors....I would pay $50 for one right now. That and Karoo lamb jchops. I miss them so so much.

So, what does the wifey say? Is she happy to be back? Does she miss South Africa at all? Anything maybe irritate her that she forgot about or has changed since she left?

Mayo here in West Africa is made with fish oil. So we make our own.  Takes you 15 minutes including cleaning up afterwards to make 2 big Mayo bottles full.  It tastes like the best Mayo you can buy in SA.  Ask and I can post the recipe.

Wors, here they use parafin to wash their equipment with and that taste is awful.  So, we make our own. Biltong, make our own.  Spices for wors and biltong is easy to mix yourself.  Talk to you local meat supply store and ask for skins.  Synthetic skins for droŽe wors.

You use the whole egg, or just the yolk?

I have only ever made it using just the yolk.

No preservatives in it (well, technically vinegar preserves), so it won't last for months in the fridge - but a smaller batch once a week.....  :thumleft:

I use the whole egg most if the time. Makes it like the Dulce mayo. Also use the yolk for a more creamy mayo

Sorry Zog but this is for you to use.

Home made mayo with correct volumes.  It never flop.

4 egg yolks
Half cup white vinegar 5% (8% use less)
2 tablespoon Dijon (non burn/hot) mustard
1 teaspoon salt (less or to taste - Kosher salt is good but Fine sea salt is better)
3 cups neutrally flavored oil (I use sunflower oil - other veg, canola or peanut oil recommended by recipe)

Place all except oil in food processor (I add 3 tablespoons of oil in the mix before the start)
Start the processor and add the oil very slowly in a very thin continuous stream until all oil is added.  After about the firs cup of oil added you will see the white mayo forming and it will start to thicken.

If the mix is too stiff add 1 or 2 teaspoons of CLEAN water while the machine is running.
If the mix is too thin add 2 to 4 Tablespoons of oil while the machine is running.  The oil will thicken it up more.  The time the machime run after the addition does not have an effect on the thickness.

I have an attachment for my machine specific for mayo but friends of ours made mayo with normal food blender.
