There's a few things that are always better home made, if you have the time, this is one of them. I don't have a blender, it's quicker if you do, but this recipe assumes that you don't. Mayonnaise was invented in Menorca, and is named after the capital city, Mahon. It is best made with the freshest free-range eggs you can get.
This turned out nothing like mayonnaise for me. It looked like mustard. It was bright yellow from the egg yolk. Maybe I wasn't vigorous enough with my hand mixing? It also tasted very strongly of olive oil. It really needs to be blended and a milder tasting oil used. Sorry, but I won't be making this one again. - 09 May 2013 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
