Number of Servings: 64


    3 Egg Yolks
    3 Cups Canola Oil
    1.5 tsp salt
    3 tbsp cider vinegar
    1 oz lemon juice
    1.5 tsp yellow mustard powder


In a glass bowl, whisk together egg yolk and dry ingredients. Combine lemon juice and vinegar in a separate bowl then thoroughly whisk half into the yolk mixture. Start whisking briskly, then start adding the oil a few drops at a time until the liquid seems to thicken and lighten a bit, (which means you?ve got an emulsion on your hands). Once you reach that point you can relax your arm a little (but just a little) and increase the oil flow to a constant (albeit thin) stream. Once half of the oil is in add the rest of the lemon juice mixture.
Continue whisking until all of the oil is incorporated. Leave at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours then refrigerate for up to 1 week.

Please note that I used 1 medium egg for each cup of oil; that is the correct proportion. Since the recipe software does not have a medium yolk entry, I entered 3 medium yolks as 2 large yolks.

Makes 56 tbsp (roughly).

    This was great! I have been looking far and wide for a good mayonnaise recipe. Very quick and easy to make. If you have not made mayonnaise before, carefully follow the directions on adding the oil. It is crucial to the success of this wonderful recipe. It gets 5 stars! - 12/17/07
