Made Like Homemade

Southerners have always known that our simple, made-like-homemade recipe of oil, vinegar and only the egg yolks is the secret to a rich, creamy mayonnaise – and now, the word is out. Taste testers said it was a “great balance of taste and texture” and called it a “solid, straight-up mayo” that’s “a close second to homemade.” It turns out that starting with egg yolks, and adding just a few, simple ingredients, is the secret to an extra rich and creamy mayonnaise.
