Once 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:
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!!!!!!!!!
