Homemade Mayonnaise

We are removing processed foods from our diet so one of our experiments has been in making our own mayonnaise. This took a few tries to perfect the recipe to get it just right.


  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 TBS lemon juice
  • 2 cups vegetable oil


Recycled pickle jar does wonders for mayonnaise.
  1. Place the eggs, mustard, paprika, pepper, salt, and lemon juice into a blender. Blend on high speed until combined. 
  2. Slowly drizzle in the oil with the blender running.
  3. Once the oil has been mixed in well, scrape the mayonnaise into a bowl, and adjust the seasonings to taste. 
  4. Store in the refrigerator up to 3 days, just as a note you can cut the recipe in half if you don’t think you will use it all up in 3 days or share with friends.
