Homemade Mayo! Yummmmmmm!

 This is the most amazing stuff! Yum! On the recommendation of a friend add dijon and basil!  I'm in love and will never buy store bought crap in a jar again!



  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered mustard
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 4 to 5 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 cups olive
  • 4 teaspoons hot water


Beat yolks, salt, mustard, sugar, pepper, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice in a small bowl until very thick and pale yellow. (Note: If using electric mixer, beat at medium speed.) Add about 1/4 cup oil, drop by drop, beating vigorously all the while. Beat in 1 teaspoon each lemon juice and hot water. Add another 1/4 cup oil, a few drops at a time, beating vigorously all the while. Beat in another teaspoon each lemon juice and water. Add 1/2 cup oil in a very fine steady stream, beating constantly, then mix in remaining lemon juice and water; slowly beat in remaining oil. If you like, thin mayonnaise with a little additional hot water. Cover and refrigerate until needed. Do not keep longer than 1 week.
