    I ran out of mayonnaise and realy wanted to make a tunna salad sandwitch. Although I could have gone down to the store, my wife and I decided to make some, and used this recipie I found on-line http://culinaryarts.about.com/od/saladdressings/ss/mayonnaise.htm we used two egg yokes, two cups of oil and one limon. We used an electric mixer and to took all of 10 minutes to make. And the sandwitch was great

    I made mayo using the Nourishing Traditions recipe and it was REALLY good! When our kids have all flown the coop I'm going to make it and not buy it. Right now I couldn't keep up with the demand! We have two boys 18 and 20 and a 16 year old daughter.

    1 pint mason jar
    1 egg
    1/2 tsp dry mustard
    1 tsp lemon juice

    Place everything in jar and fill with olive oil to just below the shoulder of the jar. Insert hand mixer with whipping blade, push to bottom, turn on high and slowly raise to top.

    Haven't bought mayo in YEARS.... since i got that hand mixer actually, 6 years now? Though on occasion hubby does beg my mom to send him some Duke's mayo [​IMG]

    Quote:I have only ever made small amounts; enough to use at one sitting. I am curious with your jar full method; does it keep in the frig for a day or two?

    Usually keeps for a week to 2 weeks with no problem, just make sure you put in in the door where it's warmer, otherwise the oil wants to set up a little. After 2 weeks it starts tasting off according to hubby (I am not a mayo person [​IMG] )

    We always make our own mayo! DH prefers it with olive oil, but that can taste kind of strong and bitter to me. I like it better with an olive/grapeseed blend. It is so easy to make and not loaded with garbage!
