Homemade Mayonnaise

Homemade Mayonnaise

Making your own mayonnaise is a simple and easy, but a word of warning - once you try this you'll never want to go back to the store bought stuff. Note that this recipe does use raw eggs, so use pasteurized eggs to reduce the risk of salmonella and please do not serve to the young, old, pregnant, or anyone with health concerns where salmonella could pose more significant problems.
