  1. Step 1

    Tip the egg yolks into the bowl of a mini food processor with the mustard and some seasoning, and briefly whizz to combine. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in the sunflower oil in a very thin, steady stream. It should take around 10-15 minutes to add all the oil.
  2. Step 2

    Once all the oil has been incorporated, you will have a thick, emulsified mayonnaise. Season with the lemon juice and some salt and pepper.
