I have never made homemade mayo. Might just have to give it a try!

— Egg yolks — Lemon juice — Salt — Dry mustard — Canola oil — Olive oil — Boiling water


Assemble all your ingredients before you begin and have everything at room temperature. Separate the eggs and reserve the whites for another use.


Warm the bowl with hot water. Dry it well. Add the egg yolks and, using a large wire whisk, beat for 1 minute until they are thick and sticky.


Now, begin adding the oil drop by drop while beating constantly. I find it easiest to do this by just dribbling drops from the end of a spoon.


Once the mayonnaise has thickened, you can start adding the oil a little faster in a steady thin stream until all of the oil has been beaten in.
