The key to creamy homemade mayo is to add just a few drops of oil at a time to the eff mixture, then pour in a slow, thin drizzle-whisking constantly-to ensure the mayonnaise emulsifies (belnds smoothly). Use plain as a sandwich spread, or experiment with added flavorings such as hot sauce or rasted garlic.
