Home Made Mayonnaise
What a fun recipe! I never would have thought to make my own mayo (always assumed it'd be too tedious or time-consuming), but my mom was talking about tuna sandwiches and home-made mayo being a childhood treat, which got me thinking . . . and with this recipe, discovered it is neither tedious nor time-consuming! On the contrary!!!!
I added a tad too much garlic (not a bad thing in and of itself—in fact, normally a GREAT thing in my book—but if using the mayo for a recipe that wouldn't use garlic, might be an issue), but otherwise, was an incredibly easy, deee-lish recipe!
I used 1/2 c. canola oil and 1/4 olive oil and ground mustard, and my Cuisinart food processor to make the mayo. The cool thing about that is that the food pusher/plunger thingy of my Cuisinart is hollow, with a hole on the bottom; turned upside down, I was able to pour the oil through it, thus being able to control the speed at which I added the oil. Have to admit, this was a tip mentioned in the Cuisinart manual, not my own "discovery!" ;)
As someone else said, I'll never be without mayo again! (well, unless I'm out of eggs, or oil . . . ) Thank you for sharing this recipe!
