Homemade Best Foods/Hellmanns Mayonnaise using stick blender
1 whole egg, medium or large size
1 Tablespoon lemon juice (bottled ok)
1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
1 teaspoon dry mustard (or 1/4 tsp prepared yellow mustard)
1/4 teaspoon table salt
pinch white pepper
1 cup vegetable (canola) oil, room temperature
Break egg into bottom of 1-quart
canning jar or other tall narrow jar
that allows you to immerse the mixing blades of a stick blender
all the way to the bottom. The jar should be only slightly
wider than the end of the stick blender.
Add lemon juice, vinegar, mustard,
table salt and white pepper.
Add 1 cup of vegetable oil.
Place mixing blades of stick blender (turned off) all the
way to the bottom of the jar, pressing
down over the egg.
Turn stick blender on high speed, hold in
place at bottom of jar for about
5-seconds until you see mayonnaise form
under stick blender’s mixing blades.
Slowly pull stick blender upward until the mixing blades
reaches top of jar, taking about
5 more seconds. The stick blender will turn
the oil into mayonnaise as it is pulled slowly to the
top of the jar.
After chilling in the fridge, this mayonnaise gets
slightly thicker and tastes very much like Best Foods/
Makes about 1-1/3 cups of mayonnaise.
