TWO SECRETS: To make mayonnaise come out with the right consistency, (and thus creamy taste), you MUST start with a very, very dry blender, and you must pour the oil in excruciatingly slowly. Do these two things, and you will never, ever buy store-bought mayonnaise again! "Miracle Whip", add 1 to 2 Tbsp. sugar. (I don't do this, as I make my own mayonnaise for health reasons, as follows...) HEART HEALTHY VERSION: use extra-virgin olive oil (organic if you can find it), and organic, free-range eggs.



PattyJoy, thank you so much for your tips on making this mayo! I ended up making two batches cause it tasted so good! I used Canola oil, less oily taste to it, and added 1 TBS sugar. I ended up only using 1 1/4 c oil and it was getting so thick I had to stop. The first time I was pouring the oil in by hand...very, VERY slowly, talk about a tired arm! The second time I got smart and poked a hole through a paper cup with a toothpick and let the oil slowly drizzel out of that (I took out the little thingy on top of the blender lid and set the cup up there :) Very good will make again!



More Tips: 1. You *must* have all ingredients at room temperature; 2. Use an immersion (stick-type) blender, if you have one. I have used my trusty Bamix since 1986 with outstanding results on this and many other recipes; 3. Be sure that the egg is the first ingredient added, followed by the vinegar (I use 1/2 red cider vinegar & 1/2 lemon juice), seasoning (I use 1/4 tsp to 1 C canola oil and the same amount of dry mustard as my mustard of choice), into a tall, narrow plastic cup (Halve the recipe for this method). Hold the blade on the bottom of the cup, turn it on to the fast speed for 20 seconds then move up & down slowly until completely mixed. Takes less than a minute, start to finish for delicious, homemade mayo! Other tips: Add finely minced chives, basil, cilantro, etc., or paprika or other spices ~ be inventive and enjoy. * * * This recipe tastes even better than Best Foods/Hellmann's mayo. We never have to buy pricey mayo. Once you try it, you may feel the same.
