My aioli mayonnaise sauce always comes out too thin, no matter how much oil I add. Does it have to do with the temperature of the eggs or am I doing something else wrong? And how do I fix it?
When you don’t get the consistency of aioli mayonnaise sauce just right, the eggs and oil refuse to come together into a smooth mixture. This happens because either the eggs or oil were cold, the oil was added too quickly, or because the whisking was not sufficiently vigorous.
First, try whisking in a teaspoon of warm water. Whisking can be done with a brisk back-and-forth motion, or in fast circles. If this doesn’t work, put another room temperature egg yolk in a clean bowl. Then slowly whisk the thin mixture into the new egg yolk, drop by drop.
