Recipe: Almost Too Easy Mayonnaise

Chris Semrick

Author: Chris Semrick


I make this in my food-processor, but the ingredients can easily be mixed by hand. I use a casserole dish in a pot as my double boiler.

In food processor add:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Mustard Power
  • 1 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1Tbsp Butter

Blend until mixed.

Cook in double boiler until thick enough to hold the swirl of the spoon, stirring frequently at first and constantly once thickening begins.

Once the Mayo is out of the double boiler, I sterilize the 500 mL jar in which I am going to keep the mayonnaise. Stored in the fridge, this will last for weeks. Delicious, and almost too easy!

    I made mayo years ago in a blender using eggs, mustard powder, lemon, cider vinegar and olive oil.
    Here’s a recipe:
    2 egg yolks
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon powdered mustard
    1/8 teaspoon sugar
    Pinch cayenne pepper
    4 to 5 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar
    1-1/2 cups olive

    Place yolks, salt, mustard, sugar, pepper, and 3 teaspoons lemon juice in blender cup or work bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade, and buzz 15 seconds (use low blender speed). Now, with motor running, slowly drizzle in 1/4 cup oil (use moderately high blender speed). As mixture begins to thicken, continue adding oil in a fine steady stream, alternating with remaining lemon juice. Stop motor and scrape mixture down from sides of blender cup or work bowl as needed.
