Homemade Mayonnaise

Making your own condiments can be cheaper and healthier. It also allows you to customize the flavor to your preference. Try this mayonnaise with an added essential oil flavor such as basil, rosemary, lemon, or black pepper!

  • 1/4 tsp. (1.5 g) salt
  • 1/4 tsp. (0.5–1 g) garlic pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) mustard
