Fresh, homemade mayonnaise is just streets ahead of the store-bought stuff, but I’ve got to be honest, the hassle of making mayo from scratch can be a bit of a drag, given it has a relatively short shelf life.

Until now.

I discovered the magic secret of Mason Jar Mayonnaise! Fresh mayonnaise in a jar, made in literally 30 seconds.

I’m not going to claim original rights to this idea, there are versions all over the web, however this is my method and recipe that works! You can see me prepare this recipe live on the  WCNC Charlotte Today Show.

 

This is a great base recipe, for this segment I made two versions of dipping sauces, Spicy Chipotle or Honey Mustard to go with the Crispy Oven Baked Wings, yum!

Note: Using raw egg in recipe can be a concern, however apparently salmonella lives on the egg shell, and not on the inside; dipping the eggs briefly in boiling water and th en in ice water is recommended to sanitize the eggs.

Of course you would want to use organic eggs from a reputable source, and use raw eggs at your own discretion.
