  • 3 large egg yolks
    1 tsp. lemon juice
    1 TB white wine vinegar
    1 tsp. sugar
    1-1/2 cups vegetable oil
    Ground white pepper

    Combine the egg yolks, lemon juice, vinegar and sugar in a blender or in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Begin blending on high speed and whip until thick and light yellow in color. Pouring in a slow, steady stream, add the oil, continuing to blend until thickened and emulsified. Season with salt and white pepper and transfer the mayonnaise to a storage or serving bowl.
    Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

  • I've always hated mayo, I wonder if this tastes better than store bought?

  • no, It does taste better but you will still hate mayo. It is a pain to make , doesn't keep and is a food risk with the raw egg yolks. I know of many people that don't like Mayo. There are other sandwich spreads to use, have you tried Miracle Whip?
