Homemade Mayonnaise

I ran out of mayo in the middle of the week and I decided to look for a recipe online. I found one that only takes egg yolk, oil, and lemon juice. I tried it and it was very runny. The oil seems to mix well with everything but very runny. I use the hand mixer I have and added the oil very little at a time.

DH came home and I told him about my dilemma and told me to use the blender instead. I put everything in the blender and sure enough it turn into a regular mayo. Thick and creamy. I guess my hand mixer is not good enough to put air into it. Mind you I spend some time doing it too. DH felt so bad because I was complaining about my hand being so tired after making just a cup of mayo...

Others actually suggested to add whey to the mixture to make it taste just like a store bought Hellman's mayo. Maybe next time when I get myself a food processor.

My wife made homemade Mayo for me, was better tasting than any store bought and had a decent shelf life.
