Homemade Mayonnaise

Homemade Mayonnaise is one of my favorite things to whip up by hand.  Some people use a food processor or blender for this recipe but I like to see and feel the dressing get thicker as it’s made.  This also enables you to determine when it’s the right thickness.  It’s also very simple to make once you get the hang of it.  Watch my video below to learn how to make mayo.

Things In My Kitchen:

  • 3 quart mixing bowl – I love these flat bottomed & wide brimmed mixing bowls for combining ingredients with veggies for roasting and for making salads.  The 2 quart and 3 quart are my “go to” bowls for almost everything.
