Just Like Hellmans Mayonnaise - Copycat - Clone

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Kaykwilts

I love buying the Helmans mayonnaise and this tastes just like it. Don't even try to make this on a rainy day or even when it is threatening to rain. It just won't set and you'll end up with a runny mess. You can substitute lemon juice if you don't have white vinegar

Top Review by VenomousKate

I've been meaning to review this, since it's become the ONLY mayo we use in my household. Not only does it have the right flavor, the consistency is perfect -- something often difficult to achieve in homemade mayo. One tip: if you're making it with a food processor, go for the large top (the one with the food pusher attachment) instead of the flat top, then pour the oil into the white food pushing tube. You'll notice it has a hole in the bottom which the oil will slowly come out of. Guess what it's there for? Yep, for adding oil to mayo at exact, perfect rate!
