Another easy recipe...... MAYO!!!

Mayo 1Once you make your own and see how fast and easy it is to do, you won't mind  knowing this little trick!!!

In about 5-7 minutes with just a few ingredients you can have a jar of mayo !

Here's the recipe:


2 eggs

1cup-1   1/2 cup of oil(safflower,corn or olive oil) Safflower is flavorless and the olive oil has a significant flavor - use whichever suits you.

1-2 Tablespoon lemon juice or white vinegar(again this will lend flavor-either will do )

1/2-1 teaspoon of salt



Start by beating the eggs until thick with an electric mixer.







Once thick start adding the oil a teaspoon at a time-if you rush this step your mayo will be runny (kinda like mine this time:0   )


Keep beating the entire time you are adding the oil.








Once stiff you can stir or whisk in the lemon juice/vinegar and salt.


Now just spoon (or pour,if you rushed the oil like me!!!) into a jar and label and cover. Store in the fridge. Mine did get firmer after it was refrigerated for a couple of hours. ***

Just don't rush the OIL!!!!!!!!!
