Can you skip the lemon in mayo?

Recommended Posts

You can use whatever acid you want, but you have to replace the lemon juice with some other acid like vinegar (any kind you like). The way mayo works is that each oil molecule is encapsulated in a tiny layer of the acid, held in place by the emulsifier (lecithin in the egg yolk). So you can't just "skip" the lemon juice, but you can use any kind of vinegar or other citrus juice you want.
