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. Okay, 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—anchovy paste, fresh herbs, or roasted garlic would all be delicious.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine egg yolks, 1 tablespoon cold water, mustard, lemon juice, and salt in a blender. Process until frothy, about 20 seconds. While blender is running, slowly drizzle in vegetable oil through lid opening, followed by olive oil; process until smooth and thick, about 1 minute. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
