  • Yield: 1 heaping pint 1x
  • Method: blender


Homemade mayonnaise is so easy to make and uses common kitchen ingredients– you’ll never have to buy it again!


  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 C lemon juice
  • 1  tsp dry mustard
  • 1 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 3/4 C non-GMO canola oil


  1. Combine the eggs through the salt in a high-powered blender*. Pour the oil into a liquid measuring cup.
  2. Place the lid on the blender and turn it on, then immediately to high. Immediately pour in the oil in a slow and steady stream while the mixture runs on high. You should hear the change in the blending as the mixture emulsifies and thickens. Turn the blender off as soon as you finish pouring in the oil.
  3. Transfer the mayonnaise into a pint jar* and store in the refrigerator.


*Alternately, combine the eggs, dry mustard, salt, and lemon juice in a quart sized jar. Use an immersion blender to emulsify the mixture while gradually pouring in the oil until the mayonnaise comes together and is smooth and thick.
