Mom's Homemade Mayo

Comment on this recipe

This is a recipe used for several generations in my family. My mom uses this with equal amounts of jarred mayo, in potato salad (delicious!), macaroni salad, egg salad and deviled eggs. I recently started making chicken salad with it.

Ingredients

6 eggs, beaten
1-1/4 cups white surgar
1 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Mix all together in medium sauce pan. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Stir constantly, until thickened. Cool. Store covered in refrigerator. Mix with equal parts store-bought mayo in salad recipes.
