    BeachGirl's Note:

    When you're out of mayonnaise, blend a batch of this Homemade Mayonnaise in under 1 minute. Because of the raw egg, this is not recommended for very young children or elderly persons, although washing the egg shell reduces the chance for contamination.

      I incorporated a lot of the suggestions of other reviewers when I made this. I poured hot water in the food processor and left it for a few minutes, then dried before using. Also, I washed the egg in vinegar, rinsed and dried it before adding to the recipe. I omitted the paprika, reduced the salt to about 1/4 tsp (because many people said it was too salty with 1/2 tsp), used 1 tbsp vinegar and about 2 tsp lemon juice, and added 1 tsp sugar. I mixed all the ingredients (except only adding 2-3 tbsp canola oil) and processed on low for 2 minutes. I then stopped to scrape the sides, before continuing to process on low. The remaining oil I added in a continuous slow stream until it was gone and the mixture reached the consistency of mayo. I was worried early on that it wouldn't thicken, but it took most of the oil for the consistency to really take shape. This turned out so well, and tasted just like real Hellmann's mayonnaise. This is a great recipe and will be sure to make this again, thanks!

      Beach Girl, you got in first with a real winner. I have been making this awesome recipe since the early 1980s (it is the only mayo my family and friends will eat). But my process is slightly different. I always double the ingredients. I put the eggs, hot English dry mustard, salt and vinegar in a food processor and buzz them for 30 seconds. With the processor motor still running, I then slowly add the oil in a fine stream. If you add the oil too fast the whole mixture will curdle. By the way, you can make it with canola, sunflower, vegetable or olive oil...but never use peanut oil. I learned that the hard way...Â?and it tastes terrible. Also, don't worry too much about the raw egg. I have served this recipe to many ages...from 2 to 96...with no ill effects. But I am very careful about my source of eggs. And a last comment, I think a great aspect of this mayo is the lack of sugar. If you must add sugar, add no more than 1 teaspoon per egg used.

      Thank you for sharing this recipe, homemade mayonnaise is the best!! I followed the ingredients to a "t" but I have to say, there is a much easier way to prepare the mayo than using a blender or food processor. Dump all the ingredients into a tall narrow container (tall, big glass works well) use an immersion, or "stick" blender. Place the blender all the way to the bottom of the glass, turn it on and slowly pull it up. Ta-Da! Your mayo is ready in less than 30 seconds.
