Hot off the press! A really easy way to bring split homemade mayo back together

Sam is making garlic mayonnaise at home this evening to have with some boiled then fried artichoke hearts cooked from frozen, and it split. Then I remembered seeing on a *really* old Delia Smith show on TV over Christmas (or somewhere else that I can’t pin down) to add a dessert spoon of hot water to the mix to bring it back together as an emulsion. I did this, then gave it a good whisk, and it worked! Silky smooth and luscious. Previously I had thought the only way back from a tragic mayo break up was by using another egg yolk with some oil and then re-introducing it into the split mix, but this is *so* much easier. Yes!
