This is the way that we have made mayonnaise for years and years in my family, before commercial mayonnaise was sold so cheaply. It's always delicious!
I made this following the recipe, but I ended up with a runny mayonnaise. I tried to fix it by adding another egg, but this made it runnier! I then added a lot more oil and it did eventually thicken up. I used a large egg and I think this might have been the problem, but as the recipe doesn't specify the size of egg I couldn't have known this before I made it. So if you try this and it doesn't thicken, add more oil, not more egg! - 23 Jul 2012
