Homemade Mayonnaise

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by crispychick

My mama always had this growing up....I never had Hellman's until I was in college!!!! I'ts just delicious, and equally as wonderful as a sauce if you thin it down with more lemon juice/vinegar and add some garlic and herbs. You must have a food processor to make this.

Great recipe! I'd never made mayo before, but this recipe made what I was looking for. It would be 5 stars but it was a little tricky adjusting to taste... that was the most time consuming bit. But it came together well and was a nice consistency. Thanks! NOTE- I've upgraded this to 5 stars because I use it all the time now! I use 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and about 1 cup of oil. I make it with the stick blender- so easy it's never failed.
