"Homemade mayo is one of those indescribable culinary pleasures. If you have a stick-style or regular blender you can make your own mayo! It's so much cheaper and way more delicious. You also get to decide what kind of oil you want: a nice fruity olive oil; a lighter vegetable oil; or your own secret custom mix."

Turn the blender on and drizzle vegetable oil and olive oil into the mixture in a steady stream. Blend until the mixture is thick and creamy.

I have been using this method to make homemade mayonnaise for years. The stick blender makes this a breeze! I don't usually add the mustard though. It is amazing how fast this comes together. GREAT METHOD!

This recipe just doesn't work for me. I followed the directions exactly and it turned out just an oily liquid, so I threw it out and started over, this time watching the video and following it exactly. It looked ok when I first started pulsing the stick blender, but when it was all mixed in it was just oily liquid again.

Ok I have to admit this did not work for me at all either was not getting thick but what I did to get it thick was add two egg whites and perfect it thickened just right and it is delicious.
