I have always wanted to try making mayonnaise, so when I saw this recipe, I decided to give it a whirl (no pun intended). I cut the recipe in half and used white wine vinegar, because I am out of distilled white vinegar. Based on several reviews, I used a dollop of dijon mustard in place of the dry mustard powder. I put all the ingredients in the clear plastic mixing/measuring cup that came with my immersion blender, immersed the blade all the way to the bottom, and let 'er rip. Emulsification started almost immediately and the entire amount was emulsified and thickened in less than a minute. My daughter kept trying to get me to tell her what I was making, but I made her wait until she tasted it. She got a big grin on her face and said "YOU MADE MAYONNAISE!!" The flavor was really good, but I think I put too much mustard in, so next time I'll use less. I love the idea of being able to whip up fresh mayonnaise as I need it and not have all the chemicals and preservatives the store-bought stuff has, plus save money! I don't think I'll ever buy store-bought mayonnaise again.
