Homemade mayonnaise

Sure you can serve store-bought mayonnaise without any loss of face. But at Food Republic we believe that there are certain things that are worth making yourself (depending, of course, whether you love or hate mayonnaise). We aren’t suggesting that you get all Martha Stewart and begin your mayo making by gathering eggs from Araucana chickens you’ve raised yourself and finishing it by serving on your best hand-crocheted doily.

Homemade mayonnaise is one of those things where the investment of effort is fairly minimal and the payoff is huge in terms of being able to impress your friends with your culinary skills. 15 minutes, 4 ingredients, minimal equipment. Just do it. (And let us know how it goes, or if you tricked out your mayo, in comments.)
