Great Aunt Marjorie’s homemade mayonnaise always made sandwiches and potato salad a treat and growing up our mother always made this mayonnaise when ham was on the menu for Sunday dinner.
We have changed Aunt Marjorie’s recipe. We have found that we could reduce the amount of sugar by ¼ of a cup with out changes the flavour. In the picture of mother’s recipe book there are three recipes. The first uses a tin of condensed milk, third is a larger recipe of the one we used today.
We did not try either of these at this time and have included them so that you can try if you want.
- ¾ cup of white sugar
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup vinegar
- 1 tbsp. flour
- ½ tsp dried mustard
- Wisk together all of the ingredients
- Over medium high heat stirring constantly until the mayonnaise thickens
- Remove from heat and keep refrigerated.
- Use the mayonnaise within one week.
