ingredients

1 egg (at room temp)
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup oil (corn, vegetable, or canola)
1 dash cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar (I like it with vinegar better)

directions

Place egg, mustard, salt, cayenne pepper and 1/4 c. oil in blender and blend on low.

While the machine is blending, SLOWLY pour in another 1/2 c. oil. You may have to stop and scrape down the mayo. Add the lemon juice/vinegar and the remaining 1/2 c. oil. Blend until well combined.

Store in refrigerator, tightly covered.

This turned out great! Just what I needed when I found I had forgotten to buy mayo. Tasted very close to Hellmans I thought.

I have not made this yet, but I STRONGLY recommend using pasteurized eggs. You can never tell when the raw egg you are using may have salmonella.

It's a bit too salty and I used half the salt. Might be just me thinking it's too salty though.

Forget the dry mustard. You don't need it at all. Cut the salt to just a pinch of sicilian sea salt. Keep the slight dash of Cayenne Pepper but no more than a dash. Use one whole egg and 1 egg yolk. Use 3/4 of a table spoon of white vinegar and 3/4 of a tablespoon of fresh squeezed lemon juice. Plus 1/8 th of a teaspoon of sugar. Of course use Canola oil. And otherwise follow the directions and you have a wonderful mayonnaise. You need to keep it in the refrigerator with a tight lid on it. It firms up nicely. As usual simple is better.

This is my second batch. I follow the recipe to a "T" and my family loves it. I have a bottle of Hellman's in the fridge and gave it a taste test. Although this recipe is close, there is a very minute difference in flavor which for the life of me I cannot identify. The two are so close in flavor I will not abandone making the copy. I do add whey to extend the life from four weeks up to a couple of months. The only way this mayo would turn out bad is failing to follow the recipe to a "T".

Tried this recipe and found it very easy to make and managed to do it in no time at all. I decided to use only apple cider vinegar and no lemon juice. I think next time round i am going to try white spirit vinegar and lemon juice. Thanks for a lovely recipe tastes great. Glenda P

Thank you to cdkitchen...At $3.99 a quart for a jar of Best Foods I decided to make my own...my husband thinks he can't eat another brand. I used this recipe after reading other reviews and followed it with these exceptions. not quite 1/2 teaspoon of dry mustard, 2 T of apple cidar vinegar and 1 T of lemon juice. It was so easy and my family loved it. Glenda

This recipe is not bad, but I do not think that it tastes just like Hellman's. I used fresh lemon juice. Maybe the vinegar would have made it taste more like Hellman's. I will try that to see if it has more of a likeness since I don't think this is a bad recipe, but as it stands for now, I liked my other recipe for mayonnaise better as well as store bought Hellman's better.

I forgot to say something. I agree with another reviewer of this recipe that it might have been the dry mustard that made the recipe taste different from Hellman's. I also have noted that Hellman's does not have mustard in it.
