    Has anyone ever tried making their own mayonnaise? Also if you have, did you preserve it in a way that it will keep for a long shelf life? I've searched recipes, but does anyone have a nice simple one made from scratch?

    Thank you [​IMG]

    I use whole eggs to make a version of Duke's mayo.
    No real recipe just 2 or more whole eggs (2 makes about a pint of mayo) beaten with salt & pepper, about a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice, about a tablespoon of cider vinegar & a dash of paprika.
    Measurements for a pint of mayo.


    I make it directly in the jar I store it in using a stick(immersion) blender.
    Just blend until it is as thick as you like it - the sound of the blender changes as it thickens.
    Keeps a month or more in the fridge.

    I thought that you needed to add oil to make mayo ...

    D'OH!
    Yes,of course.
    Directions should include drizzling oil into the mixture as you blend. I use about 1 cup vegetable oil. Just add slowly until it emulsifies and thickens.

    I make mine the same way but add a tiny dash of cayenne. Dukes has a little kick :) Best store bought mayo on the planet!

    I use a similar recipe but also add a dash of garlic powder, just improves the flavor a bit more. Real simple to make though n nothing better than home made.
