Homemade Mayonaise

Are you ready to make some homemade mayonnaise? It's inexpensive and so much healthier for you than the grocery store alternative (unless you want to pay top dollar for health food store brands).
All you need is a good blender, veggie oil (use Canola...NEVER use Olive Oil!), apple cider vinegar, 1 egg, salt, powdered mustard and a clean jar.

Here's the official recipe:
(NOTE: Do NOT double, it won't work! Instead make several batches)
1 egg
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. mustard powder
2 T. apple cider vinegar
1 cup of oil
Put egg, salt, mustard, and vinegar in blender with 1/4 c. of the oil. Blend on low.
Now, here is where you have to be careful. Uncover and pour a slender and steady stream of oil in until the mixture thicken up completely (you won't be able to put in any more oil).
WARNING: if you pour it all in suddenly, you will just have liquid salad dressing. Slow and steady wins the race! :)
When you are finished, the mixture should look something like this...
See, you have done it! You've made a tasty mayo that will please your family and your budget!
P.S. (This recipe originally came from "Laurel's Kitchen", by Laurel Robertson)

I should totally do this. I have amazing eggs from a local gal- they're only days old. I just can't get over the raw egg factor... how long does this mayo last? How can you tell if the eggs are too old?? I'm a nervous nellie :)

You are so ambitious. Mr B won't eat Mayonaise on anything! I eat a little bit with tuna. He has kicked my mayo on sandwishes ordered to. we are boring aren't we?

Hope all is well now. I tried to see your motherhood video...where did it go?

Hugs friend!

Your video works! You were cute to watch but my sounds has been broken for almost 2 months now! When it gets fixed....I will come back and listen.
When I ahve been talking about dad it is my fil. My dad served with your mom's first husband unde Patton. He was hit by a drunk driver at the age of 57 and passed away 23 years ago. I wanted you tos ee if they were in the same unit.
My fil has become like my own my dad in every way plus. So I refer to him as dad. He has started to call me mom! LOL Because I am like a mom to him! LOL I help him when his tummy hurts and when he needs a shoulder to cry on per say.
His care is a daily thing right now...and I am the only one to do it.

Happy weekend precious friend!

I am wondering about the raw egg as well. I'd love to make this for my husband but I worry about the egg.

Of Course. And please do visit Julie. She is a sweetheart with a huge testimony you feel in every post. A true blessing to blog land!

Enjoy your sabbath. Mr B leaves at 6:45 am for HC and we will end after a fireside at 9:00 PM. That is attending several Sacrament meetings and sunday school, one RS and 2 stake meetings in between for me. It is a big one tomorrow! :) But we love it!

thanks, I knew it was easy, but when I tried it I used olive oil. I definitely don't want to be buying any more.
