Since mayonnaise is a critical ingredient to any sandwich in this home, it behooves me to provide a good one. There is none better than one made from scratch. Of course it will not last for months in the refrigerator like the store-bought counterpart, but it doesn’t last here more than a week anyway.
The ingredients listed below are double what you would usually find in a cookbook. Less is laughable for us. This tasty mayonnaise is gone in a jiffy and everyone is rifling through the refrigerator wondering what happened. Cut this recipe in half if you must. Triple it for a party. It still works.
Mayonnaise recipes are pretty much the same no matter where you find them. They can differ by seasoning and you will want to experiment with this to develop your signature mayonnaise. It’s lots of fun. We are garlic lovers, hence this particular recipe (though the picture here does include some herbs as well).
Watch the video below for tips and tricks as I make this mayonnaise here in our kitchen.
