Homemade Mayonnaise

I get excited over weird things I think.

I was out of mayonnaise this week and needed some for a sandwich I was making. I didn’t want to make a trip to the store.  I’ve known it’s possible to make your own mayonnaise but never tried it.  I knew it required eggs and oil, which I had so I went to my cookbook and looked it up and made some.  I was so excited to be able to whip up mayo within seconds, and it was really good!  I was also excited about how much money I could save and some flavor ideas.

All you do is put an egg into a blender or food processor.  Add a tablespoon or two or lemon juice or vinegar, salt & pepper, and spices and flavorings you’d like.  Whip that mixture up and then with the machine running, stream in your choice of oil.  I used canola oil because it’s what I had on hand.  It will take a good cup or two of oil.  Just keep whipping and streaming until it’s a consistency you like.  Taste it and add more seasoning if desired.

My batch made about a cup and a half.  I put it into a glass jam jar that I had washed and saved.  It’s only me, so I’ll always make a small batch so I’ll use it before it goes bad (the recipe said it will last 2 weeks refrigerated).  Next time around, I’ll try a batch with either horseradish or wasabi powder.

With mayonnaise getting so expensive at the store, I believe this can save some money and even if not, I think it tastes better.
