Recipe: Almost Too Easy Mayonnaise

I make this in my food-processor, but the ingredients can easily be mixed by hand. I use a casserole dish in a pot as my double boiler.

In food processor add:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Mustard Power
  • 1 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1Tbsp Butter

Blend until mixed.

Cook in double boiler until thick enough to hold the swirl of the spoon, stirring frequently at first and constantly once thickening begins.

Once the Mayo is out of the double boiler, I sterilize the 500 mL jar in which I am going to keep the mayonnaise. Stored in the fridge, this will last for weeks. Delicious, and almost too easy!
