I love this recipe. It's the only one I use. Found it when you posted it somewhere else on the forum Meagan.  So easy and tastes great. Greatful thanks to you and Elixabeth.

I have made this twice now (it went so quick!) 1st time 2 cloves of garlic, a little to garlicky for d.p but i love garlic so put 1/2 a clove in the next time, so easy and yummy, maybe too much as we have used 1 and 1/2 jars in a week :o, maybe I won't make it any more lol! the shop mayonnaise stays in the fridge till wer make baked potatoes.

I made 'real' mayonnaise for the first time successfully today using this recipe.  Used 1 clove of garlic and did use the lemon juice,  I had no plain dijon mustard so had to use the seeded version and used Sunflower oil instead of grapeseed but it didn't seem to matter over a potato salad.  What a thrill it is to open the lid and see a perfect mayonnaise below  8) 8)

How long do you think it would last for Meagan? with only the two of us one batch could potentially last a couple of weeks.

Thanks Meagan for passing this recipe on - I've just made it, and after never having much success before, this has to be the easiest, creamiest and tastiest mayo I've ever made!
Thanks again,
Judith

I notice this mayo doesn't have vinegar or lemon juice in it at the beginning of the recipe - I thought this was required to aid emulsification - but maybe not??
The lemon juice or vinegar is the water part of the recipe and needs to be emulsified with the oils. The egg yolk is the emulsifier. By adding it at the end, there's no need to worry about adding oil slowly to make sure emulsification occurs.

Thanks for this recipe, I'll try it tonight.

Delicious! I didn't have any Dijon left, but had some Mild English Mustard. I made double the recipe and used White Balsamic. My DD said it almost tasted like Heinz Salad Cream, but needed a bit of sweetness. I added 4 tsp of Agave Nectar. Superb!!!

This is a great recipe.  I had my first failed mayo today using a different recipe and finally found this one that I have used a few times before.  Perfect, thanks for the recipe.

Heading off to make this one now! Thanks Megan for posting it. The EDC mayo failed for me terribly (just a runny mess) even though everything was room temp etc.

Thanks again. :)

*update

Perfect, absolutely perfect. Thanks again for sharing Elizabeth's recipe, Megan. I now have a perfect batch of mayo, and a perfect batch of tuna dip that my daughter can take to school tomorrow with crackers for lunch (nestled amongst freezer blocks ;))

I didn't realise I had already made this recipe once before but made it again today using 1/2 tsp Tenina's caramelised garlic paste instead of fresh garlic and only 15g dijon mustard as I am not a huge fan of mustard.  Used it over potato/spring onion/parsley salad - beautiful.

I had never attempted making my own mayonnaise until last night when I tried this recipe. I opened the lid not knowing quite what to expect and it was amazing, perfect mayonnaise!  ;D
I made it with 1 large clove of garlic and about 15g of mustard and used it on lamb souvlaki's, it made such a difference, so, so much better than store bought. Needless to say no more store bought mayonnaise in this house!

Thank you Meagan & Elisabeth for a perfect recipe.
