I can’t believe I’m actually looking at the Hellmann’s recipe!!! My family has been strictly a Hellmann’s only family forever. During the crash of 1929 , even tho it cost a bit more than the other “brand”, they only bought Hellmann’s !! I was thrilled to be able to actually purchase Best Foods recently so I could have both ( empty) bottles! Lol! Now you say they are not identical...hhhmmm... I see a tasting party coming up soon: Hellmann’s, Best Foods & homemade clone!! Will let you know how it comes out!! ????

This is a nice mayonnaise, but I found it wanting more tang (a lot more). It was kind of bland. What I love about Hellman's is that tanginess of it. I added both extra lemon juice and vinegar, but I don't think I got quite there (I'm anxious about adding too much and ruining it). By the way, doubling up all of the ingredients makes it a lot easier to measure.

I have been making homemade mayonnaise for many years, this recipe was the closest to store bought I have found. Because I only eat healthy these are the changes I made:
First off I doubled the recipe. Measurements were the same but I used free range organic eggs, raw apple cider vinegar, Kangen water, Himalayan sea salt, organic coconut sugar, fresh squeezed organic lemon juice, 1 1/4 cup Chosen Foods avocado oil, 3/4 cup organic coconut oil.
Put all ingredients EXCEPT OIL in my vitamix blender, on lowest speed I blended for 3 minutes, then I turned it up to #8 speed and slowly poured in oil. Perfection!

I did it. It cones out perfectly well. Delicious. I had all ingredients so I decided to do it because I had run out of mayo. I will definitely switch to this one.
I have been trying different recipes but nothing ever tasted quite right. This morning we discovered we only had a tiny bit of Hellman's left about a quarter of a cup. So I thought I would give it a try. I used the only thing I had veggie oil and it tastes fantastic we doubled the recipe and then added the remaining Hellman's from our jar now I have a full jar for another week of sandwiches. Thank you so much

I made this in my food processor, using a whole egg and added about a tsp of yellow mustard. It is delicious and thick and creamy.

I tried the whole egg, the horseradish, grapeseed oil and the immersion blender. It emulsified so fast! It tastes so good. I just wanted homemade mayo and was so sick of my husband's Miracle Whip, it forced me to get this done. Hurrah!!

Is it horrible to eat mayo by the spoonful? Love this recipe and the results. Have not performed a taste test with Hellmans yet, but I'm sure this mayo is healthier and better tasting. I make it with a combo of oils and every time it is fabulous.

I love making my own mayo and was horrified at the cost of Hellmans, so this is great. I agree with the other others though, I use a handblender and works perfectly. Also substitute half of the oil with either olive or coconut oil, or a combo of coconut and olive oil, when I'm low carbing.

I am in love with Heallman's (best foods) mayonnaise. I mean Obsessed. NOTHING come close to the taste. So when we switched to Organic and non GMO I was heartbroken. I tried several different kinds of mayonnaise with no success. They all have that weird taste! What is that? YUCK. Inedible. This recipe made me cry when I made and tasted it! SO easy and GREAT tasting. I used Avocado oil :) so it is super healthy too. My husband said it tastes even better then "Best Foods". Cleaner.
