1 really fresh egg, the fresher the better

2 t sugar

1/4 t salt, I use sea salt.

1 1/2 T vinegar

1 cup of your favorite cooking oil

Put all ingredients in the blender, except for  3/4 cup of oil.

When it is all mixed than add the remaining oil until it looks like mayo.



Clone of Best Foods (Hellman’s) Mayonnaise

1 egg and one yoke

1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice (bottled or fresh)

1 teaspoon white vinegar

3/4 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

dash white pepper

1 cup vegetable oil, (I use corn oil, because all canola oil) (from the rape seed plant has potentially been contaminated with Gmo crops)


Break egg into a 1-quart glass canning jar. Add lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, salt, white pepper and vegetable oil.

Place stick blender (turned off) all the way to the bottom of the jar, pressing down over the egg.

Turn it on high speed. Hold in place for about 10 seconds until you see mayonnaise begin to form.

Slowly lift the blender upward until it reaches the top of the jar, about 5 or 10 more seconds.

 Store in refrigerator for up to two weeks. Yield: around 1 cup.
