Help! No hole in MC?
« on: December 24, 2011, 01:44:17 am »
Hi - I'm a thermomix virgin and am just making aioli for the first time. The oil isn't budging at all from my MC and there doesn't appear to be any hole in it. Can anyone help?

Hi Soph

Yes pour it on the grey lid or through the hole in the grey lid slowly.

The first time I made it i just put everything in at once and mixed so stuffed it up. It is important to put it in slowly but if you still have trouble look up aioli in the search function as there is another useful post on this.

Good luck!

Hi Soph, yeh take the MC  out and just start to very slowly drizzle the oil in just drop by drop to start, my first mayo was a disaster but the second batch was yum,

Yep thanks guys - I feel like a total idiot but at least I have delicious aioli! So impressed with myself :) Getting organised for tomorrow and BBQing prawns with chilli salt and serving with aioli. Hope they are well received :) Off to make some more butter........
