Recipe For Homemade Mayonnaise


I was raised on Miracle Whip and married a strictly mayonnaise man. Gradually, I stopped buying Miracle Whip and converted to mayo, but I didn’t really ever love it. Then, about seven years ago, I decided to try making homemade mayonnaise and I found my true sandwich spread. Admittedly, there have been times when I have reverted back to store bought, but in my opinion, homemade is best. It only takes about 5 minutes to make!!

There are a lot of different recipes out there. This is mine. Once, I rushed the recipe and didn’t drizzle the oil in slowly and the results were awful. Please take your time when making this!!
