Best Ever Homemade Mayonnaise

Total Time

Everyone we know loves this easy-to-make mayonnaise and asks us for the recipe. Now it is here for them. Use the very best eggs you can buy. This is the first recipe I have posted. I hope you like it and use it as much as we do. By the way, the 32 servings are tablespoons.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large free-range eggs (the freshest you can get)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard (Keen's)
  • 14 cup white vinegar
  • 2 cups vegetable oil (or slightly less)


  1. Put first four ingredients in a food processor or blender, and buzz them for 30-40 seconds.
  2. With the motor still running, slowly add the oil in a thin stream (like string).
  3. When all the oil is incorporated, keep running the machine for another 10-20 seconds.
  4. Refrigerate the mayonnaise. If your eggs are ultra fresh, the mayonnaise can keep for two to three weeks.

This really is very good. Most of the mayo recipes I'd tried didn't have a good "bite" but this is just sharp enough with a clean flavor. Very easy to make in a quart jar with a stick blender. I did not find it too salty at all ( be sure to use level teaspoon measures ;-) ).

This is a very good recipe. It makes quite a bit. I used grapeseed oil and apple cider vinegar. It came out beautifully and tasty. Only 1 tsp of real salt. Next time I may use half vinegar and half lemon juice. Don't use evoo it tastes bitter. Have fun playing with this one. Perhaps some fresh cracked black pepper! Enjoy GMO free!

I was a little worried at first when I tasted the mayo because it seemed to salty. Put it in the fridge to set for awhile and used it to top Crafty Lady 13's recipe #316313 and the mayo was great. I did use my blender but next time I would use the food processer as the mayo had trouble blending at the top. Didnt find free range eggs so I used Eggland's Best and the 2 cups of vegetable oil. So much better and fresher tasting than store bought mayo. Made and reviewed for Recipe Swap #19.
