KWW: How to Make Mayo

Yes you read that right, this will show you how to make your own mayo.
 Why would you want to when you can stop in any store a get one? Well
1) it's cheap
 2) no preservatives
3) you can make it as organic as you want to.
1 egg yolk (i used an organic egg)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice

Directions can be found here, I followed the directions here and my may came out perfectly.
It's actually a simple trick and really great mayo can me had, the only problem being that if you don't eat a lot of mayo you have to make only the one egg, and it lasts for about a week. Another trick is to use white pepper if your going to make this, since the black flakes show up and look weird, learned that one through trial and error.

I loved the recipe, how quickly it whipped up and finding out that mayo is the basis of almost all white dressings was pretty cool. So if your a fan of blue cheese or ranch making this and using some for that is so easy. The links to make dressings are also located on the page of mayo directions

Have fun and enjoy those sandwiches topped with your own mayo
Be Blessed
