Recipe by Chef John
"Homemade mayo is one of those indescribable culinary pleasures. If you have a stick-style or regular blender you can make your own mayo! It's so much cheaper and way more delicious. You also get to decide what kind of oil you want: a nice fruity olive oil; a lighter vegetable oil; or your own secret custom mix."

I have been using this method to make homemade mayonnaise for years. The stick blender makes this a breeze! I don't usually add the mustard though. It is amazing how fast this comes together. GREAT METHOD!
This recipe just doesn't work for me. I followed the directions exactly and it turned out just an oily liquid, so I threw it out and started over, this time watching the video and following it exactly. It looked ok when I first started pulsing the stick blender, but when it was all mixed in it was just oily liquid again.
Ok I have to admit this did not work for me at all either was not getting thick but what I did to get it thick was add two egg whites and perfect it thickened just right and it is delicious.
I followed the video perfectly, and still got left with a mass of whitish colored oil. It would not blend. I used the measuring cup the stick blender came with.
Like Silentdeer I ended up with liquidy oily stuff.
Thanks once again Chef John. My grandma always had home-made mayonnaise. She would only use Mazola corn oil and just added salt and lemon juice. She also used a hand mixer and drizzled in the oil. I thought hers was the best but this is much better. I used 1/2 corn oil and 1/2 olive oil. The stick blender is much quicker and there is no splatter. You are absolutely right there is nothing better than a slice of bread with a big slather of home-made mayo. Try this recipe. You won't be sorry.
I had not made homemade mayo before but always thought it would be good. I love this recipe. Make it with canola oil and grapeseed oil. Yummy!
I tried this twice and I even added another egg yolk like other reviewers suggested. Every time I end up with an oily soupy mess. Bummer :(
