UPDATE. I tried this again today after buying DIJON mustard ( I had used whole grain Dijon BIG mistake) and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY. I did use an extra egg yolk and an extra tablespoon of Dijon. I can't wait to actually eat it in a salad This was what my first review was This was my first time making homemade mayo so maybe it was just me but this turned out very runny and oily. I had no dijon but used a whole grain dijon. As I was adding the oil it went nice and thick and I should of stopped then ( at around 1/2 -3/4 cup I think) I tried beating extra yolks( 3) and then adding but it is very runny. I might use it in a hot potato salad to not waste it LOL I am wondering if the oil measurements are correct Made for my 3 chefs fall 2008
