Why make your own mayonnaise when you could buy it in a jar? Well, that’s easy. The flavor of homemade mayonnaise is like having only seen the world in black and white and finally seeing colors. OK, maybe that’s a bit far, but a true mayonnaise should be made and enjoyed fresh. This method is easier than the old school French method, substituting a modern blender for hand-whisking oil in drop by drop. This classic recipe can be used as a base for many flavors—hot sauce, fresh herbs, or roasted garlic would all be delicious.
