Mayonnaise is a common ingredient used in making salads and sandwiches. Store-bought mayonnaise contains too much additives, thus I opt for homemade mayonnaise. Making your own mayonnaise is not difficult, the most important is to have patience. You need to add in oil at very slow pace at the beginning, if oil is added too fast, it won’t emulsify and you will fail.
