    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Beat egg yolks on medium speed until slightly thickened.
    2. 2
      Add lemon juice, mustard, salt; beat one minute.
    3. 3
      Increase speed to medium-high, add 1/2 cup oil ONE TEASPOON AT A TIME (this is very important--or the mayonnaise will "break" ie., separate).
    4. 4
      SLOWLY pour in remaining oils in a steady stream, beating until incorporated (about 10 minutes).
    5. 5
      Fold in water, lemon juice and salt.
    6. 6
      Fold in rosemary or basil.
    7. 7
      Serve at room temp; refrigerate leftovers for up to a week.
    8. 8
      REPAIR TRICK: If the mayo does "break" salvage the mixture by whisking a single (not married!) egg yolk in another bowl, then beat mayo into it a little at a time.

      Debber, I think I was too impatient, and the mayonnaise didn't set. I love the color and the flavor and don't fault the recipe. It's me pouring the oil too fast. Great taste! I will still use it, so all is not lost. Thanks for posting. I will have to try it again sometime!
